    Cheetah Report - November

    Friday, 14 November 2014

    This week has been full of beautiful sunsets and wonderful moments with the cubs.I can’t believe time has flown by so fast and Benji, Lula and Clyde are already so big. They turned 5 months this week. They now go to the dam on a daily basis and are loving the space and the water. It’s actually amazing to see them going into the...

    Tuesday, 11 November 2014

    A new six-part BBC wildlife series, Life Story, records the rites of passage of a variety of animals, birds and insects. One of the episodes focuses on cheetahs, so naturally it aroused our interest. Renowned wildlife filmmaker Kim Wolhuter spent a long time filming and getting close to a cheetah mother and her litter of five cubs,...

    Friday, 07 November 2014

    Myths and legends abound in South Africa, as they do the world over, entrenched in culture as a means of explaining social and natural phenomena. You will come across more than a few when you visit Cape Town and Inverdoorn, and we decided to share a few. Whether fact or fiction, they form an indelible part of the cultural fabric of...

    First I want to give you news about Inverdoorn. This week was really interesting because I saw the cubs play in the water of the big dam, they tried to hunt some bird and they were runing in the water. It was funny because they felt scared and curious at the same time. Clyde is more independant than lula and benji, for example today...

    I am Daniella, I am a 25 year old woman and I come from a little town called Bathurst in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. I have a huge passion for animals, especially when it comes to animal conservation. That's why I have found myself here at this beautiful place, Inverdoorn. I had no idea what to expect but it is definitely above...

    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...

    A Bundle of Surprises

    Wednesday, 08 October 2014

    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...

    The Rhino Drama

    Wednesday, 08 October 2014

    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...

    Monday, 06 October 2014

    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...

    The Big Question

    Friday, 03 October 2014

    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....

One of the most exiting things during a safari in Africa is a night with the sound of roaring lions. #Wildlife
