Leopard im Kruger National Park, Südafrika

I was stunned about the orange coloured fur of this leopard who lay relaxing in the fork of a tree. What to me didn’t look comfortable at all, seemed to be perfectly fine for this male leopard in Kruger National Park, South Africa.

After a few minutes he woke up as if he felt our stare and lifted his massive head to glance at us with a majestic look. The thrill went down my spine when I was eye to eye with this proud wild cat.

A cheetah cub in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa, separated a little from its three siblings and mom and allowed me a photo as its body was reflected in the puddle. Out of fun I turned the picture by 180°.

Amber Eyes Of Cheetah Mom

Cheetah in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa

English | Deutsch

Fortunately I was close enough to this Cheetah mom who slaked her thirst with three cubs at the almost dried up waterhole in the bone dry semi-desert of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa, to notice her beautiful amber eyes. She kept watching me slightly boastfully which enabled me to capture the fascinating moment with my camera. Continue reading “Amber Eyes Of Cheetah Mom”

Nothing does touch me more than young prospering wildlife as seen in Kruger National Park especially in springtime. Even more when I keep in mind that many of them, like lions in the wild, are at the brim of extinction like many other beautiful species.

Look into the charming eyes of this young lioness. This photo is very precious to me.

Cheetahs Threatened With Extinction

One of my favorite wild cats is undoubtedly the graceful cheetah. Unfortunately a new survey shows that the numbers of Cheetahs in the wild are declining much more rapidly than previously estimated.

We met a few cheetah mams with their cubs on the South African side of the Kgalagadi Frontier Park.

Can this unfortunate development be reversed in time?

Visiting the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa we encountered the graceful fastest land animal on Earth, the Cheetah. Being at the rim of extinction its a rare experience to see cheetahs in the wild.

Over the last hundred years their numbers dropped from hundred thousand to merely only  7,100 adult cheetahs remaining in the wild as they lost more than ninety percent of there natural habitat to human populations.

Is that unfortunate development reversible? Continue reading “Cheetahs Threatened With Extinction”

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park – Most Beautiful National Park In South Africa

Best place to visit for Cheetah and Lion sightings is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park. A game park full of wildlife in the semi-desert of South Africa and Botswana (formerly called Kalahari Gemsbok National Park), souring hot and unforgivably harsh.

Why do I sit in a car when its 40+ degrees with no shade to speak of for hours on end?!

The sun is burning everything, there’s a haze in the air, its dusty, its dry and not a single cloud to speak of and yet here we are in the South African part of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (formerly known as Kalahari Gemsbok National Park).
