The cheetah is one of the most endangered species of large predators within in Africa.
Very little in known about the cheetah population with in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve.
A new research project is now taking place with in the Timbavati Reserve.
The objective of the project is to determine the abundance of cheetahs via a photographic survey. The collecting of faecal samples for DNA extraction and sequencing in order to determine the genetic variability.
Also the home range recruitments and spatial utilisation of cheetahs within the reserve.
I was lucky to find this rare sighting of a female during a morning drive with our guests.
