MEETING NEW PEOPLE

Iziba's First Interaction with Guests

 Iziba, our six-month-old cheetah has since two months back been trained to walk on the leash. During the walks she can explore and investigate her surroundings. A while back she had her first interaction with guests at the lodge.

She was a little nervous and careful at first, but only for a short while. Within five minutes she started to run around and wanted to play with the guests. Izzi is a very brave young cheetah and loves to meet new people. She however has a lot of attitude and will try to dominate anyone that she can. When she understands her position, she is a very loving cheetah cub that enjoys cuddling a lot!

She likes to explore and play in different areas and see and learn new things. Both Izzi and the guests really enjoyed this experience.

Izzi is currently being trained to walk on the leash and meeting a lot of new and different kinds of people. She is also trained to obey simple commands and do some tricks. We will also soon start training her to go in the car, so that we can be able to transport her easily.

She will try to dominate anyone.

The future holds a lot of new experiences and life lessons for little Iziba. Follow her progress in life at Inverdoorn Game Reserve!
