Two male cheetahs were released from their boma at Thanda Safari Private Reserve this past weekend. The 5-star reserve, located in Northern KwaZulu-Natal, released the cheetahs on Friday morning.
Thanda Safari’s Wildlife Coordinator Mariana Venter said the cheetahs were doing well.
“When both of the boys were released, they walked towards the savanna area and almost immediately started looking for prey.
“We hope that they continue their strong bond, much like the brothers we had in the reserve a few years ago,” she said.
The cheetahs have VHF Radio Collars and monitored by Venter twice a day.
“They are keeping me extremely busy,” she added.
The female cheetah, who arrived at the reserve in August, will be released in December.
