The N/a’an ku sê Foundation is home to several cheetahs and other magnificent carnivores that can never be released back into the wilds of Namibia, due to being human imprinted – a factor that would significantly reduce their survival chances in the wild. The reasons for them being human imprinted are manifold – many were kept as pets or came to N/a’an ku sê as cubs orphaned at birth.
