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!

Seen the same Cheetahs on the 11th of December on the H7 & S36 junction. Spent about 2 hours with them, the one stood up and walked abit but the injured one just layed in the same spot. I wonder if that Cheetah never had its brother with him, would he have survived? Because i guess the healthy Cheetah is doing all the hunting. :hmz:

I did see the cheetah brothers! :dance:

Right on the corner of the s39 and H7, they were there the whole day!

But, still the second brother is badly limping, and I can only suspect the injury to be quite serious... :hmz: Anyway, here are the pics
