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

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

Currently we have five cheetahs in the breeding facility. There are nine closed-off areas in which the cheetahs are rotated.

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...

It’s my first time in Africa and I’m really happy to be here at Inverdoorn where I started five weeks ago. In those five weeks a lot of things have...

Meet the Cheetahs: At the Lodge

Meet the Cheetahs: At the Lodge

There are 14 cheetahs in total at Cape Cheetah [based at Inverdoorn Game Reserve], all of whom play different roles in the contribution towards the success and conservation of the cheetah species. The only way to describe these magnificent creatures is by using human characteristics that we can relate to. While reading, keep reminding yourself that the cats I am describing are born wild, and no matter what, we can never extinguish...
