Tracking Cheetahs

This week started with a successful hunt for the male cheetah. He caught a large female lechwe close to the dam, so we put up the bush-cam near his kill. The first two days we caught pictures of the male cheetah feeding, but no other animals, so we put the bush-cam back up to see if we could find other animals feeding on the kill. We should be checking the camera in the next few days. During my last tracking with Leah, we found the...

Cheetah Tales

This week, like any other week at Inverdoorn, had some exciting events happen. We have been moving a lot of the cheetahs around in the breeding camp, as a few of the females have been in heat. Moving in the females with as many different males as we can will give us the best chance of them mating. It’s been a little frustrating as female cheetahs are very picky about whom they choose to mate with, and there is nothing you can do to...

Meet the Cheetahs: The Wild Ones

Meet the Cheetahs: The Wild Ones

These five cheetahs call the cheetah facility their home for now, but they too will one day be able to live the cheetah dream and feel the free wind brushing through their fur as they make their first kill. Every night they get the chance to let all their energy out and run after the lure during cheetah runs. If you think they cannot understand you, think again. Once the words “ready for countdown” are spoken over the radio all...

A New Addition

This week started off as a first, and a new beginning for me. I was offered the amazing opportunity to call myself an employee of Inverdoorn, starting on 1st March. This means that from now on I have a lot more responsibilities like tracking, doing cheetah interactions and, of course, cheetah runs. Although this week was quite stressful, I cannot say that I did not enjoy it. The week started with the male cheetah hunting a male...

Meet the Cheetahs: At the Breeding Facility

Meet the Cheetahs: At the Breeding Facility

Currently we have five cheetahs in the breeding facility. There are nine closed-off areas in which the cheetahs are rotated. If and when a female goes into heat she will be moved in with a male and all fingers are crossed for successful mating. This area will not be their home forever; these cheetahs will also have the opportunity to be released. No cheetah will be kept in the breeding facility permanently. Nushka Approaching...
