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

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...

A Team for all Seasons

With things starting to calm down around the lodge and busy season drawing to a close, less guests doesn't mean less work for our cheetah girls. For the cheetahs, winter season is no different to the busy season. Unfortunately Velvet has far less interactions, which means less cuddles from guests; but luckily there are still lots of cuddles from her caretakers. This is my first winter season at Inverdoorn and finally we get the time...

Birds and Beasts

This week started with an interesting cheetah tracking. On Tuesday, Leah and I went together and suddenly we saw both of the hippos at the dam's edge. They were taking advantage of the early and peaceful morning. I was really surprised to see how big and impressive they are, but also they seemed really majestic and quiet. Such wonderful animals! I hope the next time I see them outside the water; then I will take pictures of them....
