Ranger Diaries – Cheetah the expert Hunters

By Samara on May 28, 2015

Sightings during the month of May has just been an absolute treat! We had great sightings of hundreds of elands at a water hole, during a late afternoon drive. Giraffe, Zebra and Oryx sightings have also been plentiful, leaving guests in awe .

On one particular afternoon the Rangers and a few guests, followed a female cheetah through the bush. This Cheetah was clearly on the hunt. Slowly, stealthily moving through the bush, being sure not to make a sound and stopping to listen every now and then. To our delight, and without any warning, she rushed ahead and flushed kudu out of a thicket. Of course she was so fast that we could hardly keep up with her. We kept tracking her though and found her on a kudu kill. All in all, plenty of stories to tell of the magnificent sightings our guests have seen. We can’t wait to see what June has installed for us!
