Pikasso recommend to post several cheetah pictures taken last year, in August, between Crocodile Bridge and Lower Sabie.

I can see a cheetah female with 4 little during 20 minutes.

sorry for the bad quality but my camera was broken because of the dust

Speedy cheetahs put through paces

Scientists are attempting to discover exactly what makes cheetahs the fastest running animals on the planet.
A Royal Veterinary College (RVC) team is using high-speed cameras and a sensitive track to monitor the big cats as they sprint.
Cheetahs can reach speeds of at least 104km/h (64mph) and they can achieve their top speed in just a few paces.
The study is being carried out with North African cheetahs from ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.

There is more, click the link. ;)

On March 11, 2008 when I was driving from Lower Sabie to Tshokwane on the H10, appr. 1 km from Lower Sabie, a cheetah with three cubs crossed the road. Unfortunately the cubs dived into the long grass and were not longer visable. However, the cheetah lady climbed a tree and watched the area. Here are a few pics. Enjoy!

I just returned from a couple weeks in Kruger.

While I was in Satara there were a two cheetah that were always found on the H7 by the junction of the S36 and Timbavati road. Unfortunately, one of the cheetah was badly injured. One of his hind legs was injured and he was limping badly.

Does anyone have an update? Last I saw them was around Dec 1.

:yaya: Skywalker,

The Ratpack saw them in end of January sometime when we went out on a night drive. They are 2 brothers that walk or walked together but havent seem them or heard of them for some time now and Ive been there 7 times since. Would be nice to hear whether the 2 of them is still going strong.

We saw them exactly there as far back as 2006.

My hunch is that the 'well' brother will do the hunting and the 'sick' brother will either get better or sooner or later fall prey to something bigger if he cannot get away in time.

Saw them at that exact spot on 13 Nov 2009, they lay under the same tree all day. The healthy one walked away a few times and it appeared that he was calling the injured one the whole time. After a while it would turn around and join it back under the tree!
