Cheetah male’s first kill

One of our rangers just called in to let us know that the three cheetah brothers were spotted in the north-western section of the reserve on a kill. They had not yet started feeding and appeared pretty exhausted! Finally success – the brothers successfully made their first kill!

When we arrived at the scene we identified that they had successfully hunted and killed a young kudu. They were still feeding and had already removed the stomach content which is quite normal for cheetah. Some hours later they still remained in the vicinity to finish off the whole carcass.

The brothers have done great and we are extremely proud of them.
