Bad news for the bunnies! Great news for Thanda Safari!

This week an additional female Cheetah was released onto the reserve. The young cat, which came to Thanda with a serious leg injury in October, spent four months in a boma (=fenced-in area) to recover.

But she obviously lost none of her skills. Less than an hour after her release she gave a Scrub Hare a run for its money. She almost caught the nimble creature. And on the day after her release she made her first kill and even climbed a tree to mark the occasion of her recovery.

We wish her all the best in her new home and hope she will meet our Cheetah gentlemen, soon.

Catch the Scrub Hare …
Miss the Scrub Hare …
Speed …
Rain on the Savanna …
A short rest …
Careful steps …
That’s it …
