What species of cheetah you can expect to see on safari
Almost like your household pussy cat.. well, from the safety of your land cruiser that is! and only when compared to their much beefier cousins the lions.. Cheetahs get bullied to give up their hard run kills by lions.. but no other animal has this speed.. like a scene from star wars… i don’t think their feet every touch the ground on full throttle.. tall grass separates as they flash though it..
Cheetahs are active mainly during the day, with hunting their major activity. Best time to see them? any time of the year! However, during this decade these swift hunters have been Classified as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the cheetah has suffered a substantial decline in its historic range due to rampant hunting in the 20th century.
A really sad fact
By late 2016-early 2017, the cheetah's global population had fallen to approximately 7,100 individuals in the wild due to habitat loss, poaching, the illegal pet trade, and conflict with humans, with researchers suggesting that the animal be immediately reclassified as "Endangered" on the IUCN Red List.
