Above and 3 photos below, Savanah, Tshukudu, South Africa. We were so fortunate that day, as Savannah caught a little Steenbok, when we were on a game drive. She allowed us to get close enough to take photos of her while she was eating. Read more about Savannah at the bottom of this page.

About Savannah

Savannah is a  female cheetah and she was an orphan. She was raised by the owners of Tshukudu Game Reserve, which is a private game reserve. At Tshukudu orphaned animals are raised too, but they aren't treated or raised as pets at all. Savannah is used to people and she likes to visit the camp sites often. She allows people to touch her head or back, but no one is allowed to touch her tail or stomach. She spends most of her time in the bush and she hunts for herself. Even though she is used to people, she will still see anyone who tries to run away from her, as prey. Therefore we were warned that if we walk into her, not to run at all.
