My favorite animals are cheetahs. So I would like to see them in the natural habitats. Where should I travel to to maximize my chances?
According to this Wikimedia image you can find cheetahs around Africa and Middle East.

One of the easiest places to see Cheetahs (I saw a lot there) is Masai Mara National Park (Kenya).
Certainly much of Africa has them in their natural habitat. Tourist wise, an easy option is a flight to JHB (Johannesburg), and then east a few hours by car to Kruger National Park. I can personally attest that they are there - I have photos to prove it ;)
If you are looking for one single place, go to the Okonjima Reserve in Namibia. It is located not far from the Waterberg plateau, a four hours drive from Windhoek.
In big reserves like Kruger (South Africa) or Etosha (Namibia) you can travel on your own. Nevertheless, I would rely on the services of a guide if I really wanted to see Cheetahs. Okay, you can find some on your own, it is perfectly possible. Moreover, a guide may fail to find some. That's nature ... However, using professional guidance is an excellent way to maximize your chances.
