Cheetah Report - 10th/16th November

This week at Inverdoorn has been pretty busy and exciting.For me, it was my first time doing a cheetah interaction on my own and my first time doing it at the airstrip, it was quite nerve wrecking. It went smoothly apart from it being windy.

For the Love of the Lion

Lions have received a lot of attention throughout the ages for being king of the jungle, inspiring the fantastic character of Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia and, of course, The Lion King. On safaris, many are often keen to see lions above all other animals, not just because they are part of the Big Five, but because they really are magnificent specimens of nature.

It’s actually amazing to see them going into the water so relaxed and Benji even went for a swim this week. Even though he had a little bit of help by...

Sister Act

WRITTEN BY // Claudia Hauter CATEGORIES // Inverdoorn-blog

Sister Act

A new six-part BBC wildlife series, Life Story, records the rites of passage of a variety of animals, birds and insects. One of the episodes focuses on cheetahs, so naturally it aroused our interest. Renowned wildlife filmmaker Kim Wolhuter spent a long time filming and getting close to a cheetah mother and her litter of five cubs, giving him the opportunity to get up close and personal with them, on and off camera. The episode...
