Inverdoorn – To give our visitors a real insight into the daily life of an African animal expert Inverdoorn likes to give you Cheetah reports from our experienced members of staff.
This week we have one from Annami who writes about life beyond the safaris, and day visits. She explains what it's like watching these Cheetahs grow and getting to know their individual personalities.
It really is an experience that no handbook can explain to you.
So buckle in and read all about Cheetah kisses, hugs, and naughtiness and in this big cat report:
"It feels like yesterday when I wrote about how the weather is cooling down, and we are surrounded by snow. Now we are starting to warm up once more as the weather goes from summer to winter in the blink of an eye...
But the temperature isn't the only thing rising lately; our little Cheetah Iziba is starting to exceed our expectations.
We started using her more often for interactions with the guests and she has truly surprised us all. As I am walking up to my guests with naughty Izi on the leash and I can't help to wonder how this interaction is going to go. We walk up to the landing strip, Izibas head held high in excitement. As we reach the umbrella she calmly sits down next me, kissing me and almost "hugging" me, assuring me that she's got this. All her guests got the amazing opportunity to feel her soft coat and she was as relaxed as I could ever ask for. Walking back to the lodge was a breeze as she gave me no trouble at all.
And of course the cherry at the end of our week is to spend some quality time with the babies. Clyde, Benji and Lula are growing up so fast and I can't believe how tiny they were just a few weeks ago. And then off course after a whole morning outside playing and hunting each other, their tiny little eyes start to dose off and each of them find a comfy spot in the sun where they take their afternoon nap. When they wake up it all starts over again...and again..."
