Productive Night Drives

Night drives are one of our feature activities and one that has been very productive so far. Two nights ago, our 5 guests continued on a night drive after enjoying a bush sundowner only to┬ácome across a cheetah with an impala kill just 800 yards from camp. It’s not the first time we see cheetah at night. In June we took a film group on a night drive who filmed an ostrich being killed by cheetah a little further from camp. We know there are 3 male cheetah that specialize in hunting ostrich on the Conservancy – already a rarity in itself, but we are now believe there are other single cheetah in the area. We will be collecting photos of the cats to determine how many live in the area and so are pleased that we managed to get ┬ásome good shots, some of which appear below.
