This is such an exciting development. Let’s hope, that this young male establishes himself safely. Can’t wait to see how things work out.

Thank you for the update Keagan. It will be interesting to continue to monitor the life of this cheetah at Londolozi. I hope they can survive as a species.

Exciting news about another cheetah at Londolozi. It is such a pity that these beautiful animals are so threatened . So I do hope that this young male will be successful in establishing his own territory and maybe amte with the female in the area. Would be great! For Londolozi, your guests and especially for the cheetahs.

Keagan this Cheetah is a stunning cat and we hope that he will stay on Londolozi ground. Hopefully he can get a female and have cubs. I now that they have much difficulty in raising their cubs with all the odds against them. Beautiful images of this male and let’s hold thumbs that he will stay.

Does he appear to be of a good age to be out looking for his own territory? And with no females in the area, would he stay? Seems like there’s so many questions but will be happy to hear of his successes!

It was so exciting to see that young male cheetah during my visit last month. He looked good, albeit a bit on the lean side. With so many other predators on and around the property, he’ll need to be more clever in his hunting. Hopefully you’ll have many more sightings of him in the months to come.

AWESOME post Keagan!!! The cheetah is my favorite, along with the wild dogs, and it is so exciting to learn of more frequent sightings of late. And this brave and risk-taking young male will be really fun to follow as you all keep us abreast of his what I hope are his many successes! Rooting for him and will stay tuned!!

Superb pictures and lovely blog! I think bottleneck is a problem for many living beings nowadays. But cheetah, in spite of that, survive and thrive, even when persecuted by humans for the most absurd reason (above all the others): to be kept as pets. This is more tragic than every bottleneck. What surprises me most is that their meek personality, so sought after, combines with an incredible resilience. Real wonders

He is quite beautiful and I hope that he does well. What is interesting is that the other older male that used to frequent the southern grasslands seems to have disappeared…..maybe there is space for this young male to find his footing?
