Experience the delight, fear and exhilaration when cheetahs hunt.
We offer visitors the opportunity to see and experience cheetah hunting in the wild. The excursion consists of walking with cheetahs while they are hunting. One sees the effort and time it takes for these animals to hunt down their prey. All people participating have to walk in single file, dressed accordingly and be very quite for the duration of the hunt, which in some cases can be up to 6 hours.
Buks Marais describes his first encounter - “We stood near the vehicle as 2 cheetahs – brothers both about 5 years old – were let out of their camp. They are tame and walked right passed us, ready to hunt. We followed them for most of the morning as they attempted to hunt down Impala and Kudu.
Finally the kill happened very fast. We saw the one cheetah heading up the hill, the other cheetah charged down the hill, splitting the herd of Moutain Rheedbuck. The cheetah caught up with a Rheedbuck ewe at the bottom of the hill and with one decisive bite put her down and starting gorging at the hindquarters.”
