During the cold wet weather, we end up enjoying two incredible sightings in this Virtual Safari. We start off with a mother cheetah and her sub-adult cub as they spend a cold wet morning lounging about on a termite mound. A pesky hyena walks by but realises there is nothing to steal from the cheetah and carries on its way. The young cheetah then spends a while charging around burning off some pent up energy.
We then marvel at the strength of the Ximungwe Female as she drags a fully grown impala ram through a clearing to stash it under a bush. In case the impala wasn’t difficult enough to drag, she has the frustrations of her young male cub thinking it is a game and pouncing on the carcass and wrestling with it every time she tries to move it.
Enjoy this Virtual Safari…
A single cub of the Ximungwe Female's second litter. Initially rather skittish but is very relaxed now. Birth mark in his left eye.
Having been viewed by vehicles from an early age, this leopard is supremely relaxed around Land Rovers.
