Cheetah Report 11th of June

I was very excited to be invited back to Inverdoorn for the second time as a cheetah handler after being here for three months last year as a volunteer. Some major things have changed since the last time I was here and it's very nice to be back. My first sunset back on the reserve was bright red, yellow, and pink, just like I remembered them. The Rhinos at the lodge Lufinia and Bundu have gotten so much bigger; I was shocked when I...

Cheetah Report 8th of June

This week was a big week for me and especially for the cubs. Lula, Clyde and Benji turned 1 year old, which was a very emotional event.

You have to make time for assignments after working dinner the night or doing evening and morning safari. Time...

(late) Cheetah Report 24 April

This week's cheetah report matches perfectly the end of my first week as a volunteer at Inverdoorn. My name is Alexandra, I'm 25 and when I left Switzerland I didn't know exactly what to expect, I knew I would be "working with cheetahs" but that just soundstooincredible right!? When I met Velvet and Iziba, the 2 adult cheetahs of the lodge, and Lula, Benji, Clyde, the 3 cubs, I realised how impressive they are, but also sweet and...
