I will hope that the female will give Londolozi many more years of viewing pleasure.
Hopefully that will include some very sweet and lovely cubs.

Thank you for sharing!

I certainly hope that the female cheetah will reproduce again! We were not able to see the one male cheetah at Londolozi last January. I hope we get to see many running around when we next return!

Help her out. Keep her predators at bay!

Hopefully the cheetah population will rebound. When we visited Londolozi, we heard of a plan for a ‘chain’ of reserves reaching from the Kruger across several privately owned conserves and eventually across all of S. Africa. We visited one, Samara, which has a tracker school, and were interested in their cheetah conservation. If S. Africa can ‘connect the dots’ (sorry for the pun) the cheetah will have more land to roam, breed and multiply. In addition, other animals will regain access to their original migratory path. Here’s to keeping the chain unbroken!
Gorgeous pictures and great info on cheetah mating!

I have never seen such young Cheetah cubs before, so I absolutely love this photo! So beautiful! I hope this female Cheetah’s sub-adult cubs continue to thrive. It is such a stressful life for her, made even more difficult by having cubs to feed and protect as well. She is such an amazing mother, so hopefully there will be more cubs before too long. Thanks James for the great blog and photos and for keeping us updated on the Cheetahs!

Thank you James, the pictures are stunning. Good luck for that beautiful Cheetah that she can produce & raise her babies in your pristine surroundings.
