A New Cheetah Girl

A New Cheetah Girl

Hi, I'm Hannah. I come from Germany and am working at Inverdoorn as a volunteer for four months. I've been here for three weeks, and it's my first cheetah report. This week one of the female cheetahs, Nushka, went into heat, so we brought a male cheetah, Joti, into her camp. But he didn't look very interested in her. We put a bush-cam in the camp to see if anything happens between them. While we were checking the camera we saw that...

Working at the lodge can be difficult psychologically, because we have to meet all the demands of the guests and make sure they are always happy. We try our best to resolve any problems and make their stay a happy one so that they leave with...

Cheetahs

WRITTEN BY // Jenny Adenyoh CATEGORIES // Capecheetah-blog

Cheetahs

In the 1970s, the cheetah population was estimated at 15 000 in Africa. Today, the known cheetah population in the wild is approximately 6 000; half the population is located in Namibia. A decline of at least 30% is suspected over the next 18 years. The decline is primarily due to habitat loss and fragmentation, as well as the killing and capture of cheetahs as livestock predators, but also for trade. Because of this fragmentation...

A Farewell to Animals

A Farewell to Animals

This weekend wrapped up my last few days at Inverdoorn. I have been here just over three months and what an experience it has been. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when I first arrived, but it didn't take long to figure out that even though every day's routine was similar, it was also always different. The work wasn't always fun or easy, but the fun times made it all the more worthwhile. I have experienced things I never...
