Hi, To all the Cheetah lovers visiting the North of Kruger. There is good news for you all. My dad was in Kruger today and he saw 4 cheetahs eating an impala. It was seen exactly where I have put a red dot. There has been sightings reported in that area for the past 4 days. So people visiting the North, Do give Mphongolo loop a chance. :wink: Image

13 february 2012 - S90 (Old main road near Satara), about two kilometrs after turn-off with H1-4.

They were far away. For me the first time I saw four cheetahs together.

Jealous Impisi! I travel the old main road for that exact reason! Those four have been reported as high as Bangu :D

Staying in the Satara area ... here are the Sweni Bros I saw in December. 1km South of the Sweni river on the H1-3.

Cheetahs, does the pack have a name?

Unread postby ekoppen » Thu Jun 14, 2012 6:07 pm

On several occasions we came across a group of four hunting cheetahs in the S90, S100, S41 triangle. Does the pack have a name? :hmz: We started refering to them as the Four Amigos

The collective noun for Cheetahs is a coalition of Cheetahs.


A coalition :hmz: .....I learn something new every day

Squinting through the viewfinder I called the gender wrong...the "she" is a "he"

3D it was a male cheetah calling for a mate. He walked, ran, a lioness appeared (and a lion but not shown) marked some territory, climbed a dead tree, found a mate (and mated, but not shown on video.) Lovely shots of the cheetah and great to hear the calls.

Thanks for posting eKoppen :thumbs_up:
