Cheetah Cub Update

This week something very sad happened at Inverdoorn. We lost one of our cheetah cubs. When we went to check on the cubs on Monday we realised that one was missing and after closer observation saw that another cub was injured and had a big cut on its back. The cub urgently needed help and we decided that it would be for the best to take the other two with us, since we didn't know what had happened. Later on we went back to look for...

Lotta and her Litter

As you already know, a little miracle happened at Inverdoorn on the 31st of May: four beautiful cheetah cubs were born. But let's first go back in time. I started working at Inverdoorn in January last year and six months later I decided to make it my mission to see cheetah cubs born at the reserve. I say mission, because conservationists really struggle to breed cheetahs in captivity, because they are very special when it comes to...

A Time to Chill

This week we were all reminded that winter season does not only bring less guests to the reserve, but also some very, very cold weather. Waking up to snow-white mountains all around makes us appreciate how lucky we are to enjoy their beauty. As if this view was not special enough, during one of our tracking sessions I found the female with a blood-red face, panting over a freshly-caught springbok. Unfortunately, I didn't have a...

Free-roaming Cheetahs

This week was a little bit quiet, because fewer guests came to Inverdoorn but there was plenty of action from our cheetahs. The female cheetah in the reserve is especially healthy and she has totally recovered from her injuries. We found her twice with a springbok! The first kill was on Wednesday and I was with Leah. When we found her, she had just killed the antelope. She was eating so we went farther in order to let her enjoy the...

Quality Time

It has been a topsy turvy few days here at Inverdoorn! Both the lodge and the cheetah girls have been putting in hard work and sweat digging, building and cementing for a new pool at the lodge. In the next couple of weeks we hope to move on to Iziba and Velvet's camps to upgrade them and make them even nicer for the girls. Tracking-wise, the male has been very busy this week. He caught at least one lechwe and had a nice few meals...
