When it comes to the things we are looking forward to in the new cheetah camp (which is currently in the design phase), we are overwhelmed with the potential for improvement in all aspects. Making permanent staff more comfortable as they live and work in the Kalahari, developing a new livestock guarding dog training centre, and setting up a self-contained cheetah holding facility are amongst top priorities – there are so many things that we now have the freedom to incorporate within our new camp built on our very own farm in Ghanzi.
For several of the staff, however, the requirements are much more basic. “Snake-proofing” was not only one of Rethabile’s requirements, but sits high on the priority list of several of the CCB staff members who call Ghanzi Camp their home.
For the holiday period at the end of this year, we are running a fundraising campaign aimed to raise $100,000 to build our staff housing, office and demonstration farm at our new site. If you’re interested in helping support us to build our new CCB camp – click here. Any level of support is most welcome and thanks to our generous supporters any donations up to $30,000 will be matched! Please join us to create a permanent home for CCB in the Kalahari that we would love our donors to visit one day!
