Madikwe Cheetah Photograph Gallery

Getting to see Cheetah in the Madikwe Game Reserve is not easy, the reserve currently only has 5 (yes that is 5). We were very very fortunate on our last visit not only to see Cheetah but to also witness then on a hunt.

Apart from the fact that are so few, cheetahs are so very well camouflaged as you can see from a few of the below images (see the 14 image below). This alone accounts for the reason they are seldom spotted.

These cats are particularly beautiful and gracious, they when walking seem to glide across the bushveld in total silence. It was a privilege watching these two and a memory that will stay with me (and my family) for a long long time.

The reason that the Madikwe only has 5 is that lions and wild dog keep killing them - yes another fact fact on how brutal nature is.

All photographs here on this page have been taken by us here at Uyaphi.com for the sole purpose of showcasing the Madikwe Game Reserve as we see it.
