Wonderful tracking safari today.
This week we spent some time tracking the Ximungwe female as she leads us on a wild goose chase around her territory. The Tsalala female was seen and looking healthy and with a full belly, hoping that she may be pregnant, we cross our fingers and wait patiently for any further signs that she may in fact be pregnant. The week ended off with the incredible sighting of a female cheetah and her two cubs on the airstrip. They then venture down to a large waterhole for a drink where things nearly take a turn for the worst. As the mother was having a drink a crocodile that had been lurking beneath the surface tries to catch her. Thankfully her lightning-quick reactions allow for her to get out of this one alive.
Enjoy this Week in Video…

We believe that the Tsalala pride is intact and well. I am sure when she gives birth she will separate herself away for a short while. It is also quite likely that the younger female will hang around nearby for the most part. It is not unusual for them to spend time apart now as there is only two of them.
