All Things New

WRITTEN BY // Seonaid CATEGORIES // The Inverdoorn Diaries | Capecheetah-blog

All Things New

Hi, my name is Seonaid, and this is my first week at Inverdoorn as a cheetah girl. I grew up on South Africa's West Coast and have always had a passion for wildlife. When I was younger I dragged my grandfather through a zoo on a very hot summer's day, just to make sure that I had seen everything. I have learnt a lot about the residents, animals and owners of Inverdoorn. I admire the owners for creating this amazing place. When I...

A Bundle of Surprises

WRITTEN BY // Leah Brousse CATEGORIES // Meet the Cheetahs | The Inverdoorn Diaries | Capecheetah-blog

A Bundle of Surprises

The first of this month I came back from my annual holiday. It's been four weeks and a lot has happened at Inverdoorn. Good and bad things, happy and sad moments. Unfortunately, we lost one of our wild cheetahs. One of our males got sick before I left, and while I was gone it was decided it would be for the best to put him down. For two weeks he was treated and spoiled. My team did everything they could to make him feel better, but...

The Rhino Drama

The Rhino Drama

Rhino poaching carries on unabated in South Africa. Diminishing rhinos, covert operations, gunfire in the bush and, most recently, the spectacular arrest of an alleged poaching syndicate, make the entire situation read like the plot of a Hollywood action thriller – and as far as these go, good usually triumphs. We can only hope that life will imitate art, and end with a similar outcome. These forms of drama often involve the court...

Race Against Extinction

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

Race Against Extinction

Human beings have an innate need to constantly prove themselves; to do the improbable, to be the best or, as is the case with Usain Bolt, the fastest. He has already proved himself by being the fastest human being alive, and now he wants to take the title of being the fastest land mammal away from the cheetah. But let's face it, even if he somehow managed to achieve this, it would make him a rare exception. We love the cheetah –...

The Big Question

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

The Big Question

The Big 5 is a term I hear a lot. I hear it so much, it's as familiar as the twitter of a bird during the day and the chirp of a cricket at night. When I meet foreigners or volunteers in South Africa, I love asking them if they know about the Big 5, and if they do, which animals make up this group. So far, I've been duly impressed. Everyone I've questioned has managed to get at least three of the animals right and the other animals...
