Okonjima : The AfriCat Foundation 

Namibia is home to six large carnivores species including cheetahs, leopards, lions, spotted hyaenas, brown hyaenas and wild dogs. The majority of these species are in conflict with people as Namibia is largely a livestock farming community. The Africat Foundation was founded in 1992 to promote large carnivore conservation and animal welfare. The initial years were spent rescuing cheetahs and leopards from traps and housing orphaned cheetahs and leopards. 

The sanctuary consists of approximately 500 hectares (1250 acres) fenced off enclosures where they house over 70 cheetahs, 6 lions, 5 leopards and 4 caracals. Wild leopards are fed every night - giving guests a chance to watch these magnificent predators from the safety of a hide. Viewing of leopards is not guaranteed, and leopards are radio-collared for monitoring purposes. Cheetah tracking and viewing: cheetah radio tracking is done by foot in a rehabilitation area. Orphaned cheetah viewing is included in the daily activities. Okonjima and Africat has recently become more well known as it featured in its own National Geographic Documentary.
