Thanda Safari in Zululand has added a new cheetah to the reserve.
The cheetah, a young 22-month old female, arrived at Thanda on August 21 from Mkuze Game Reserve.
Just minutes after being released from the transport container to a boma, by Thanda Safari’s Wildlife Co-ordinator, Mariana Venter, the young cheetah wandered around her new surroundings.
“We’re very excited at her arrival – just a few months ago, we welcomed two male cheetahs to the reserve – they’re currently still in a boma and will be released into the reserve on September 7,” said Venter. “The new female will spend the next three months in a boma to get used to her new home, before being released into the reserve.”
