Of all of Africa’s cats, the cheetah is probably the most lovable. You can get up close and personal and live to tell about it, not true of leopards. While traveling in Namibia and South Africa, we found several sanctuaries that are working to restore the species. I was told that very few actually live in the wild anymore. At a friend’s farm in Namibia, he had two baby cheetah that he had rescued after the mom had been killed. As I recall, he wasn’t sure how she died. He kept them in a pen which I entered and was able to get up close. They didn’t like me in there and spat and hissed at me. But, after a few minutes, they calmed down and just became used to my presence. With a little help from my zoom lens, I was able to capture this Suh-Weet shot of this little guy chilling in the shade.

  1. Great picture, I have heard that Namibia has quiet a lot of animal sanctuaries, I have actually found an elephant one and planning to go there this winter to work voluntary! I think it will be an amazing experience!
