Cheetah’s world...


Cheetah in Zimbabwe are highly endangered and continue to be persecuted as they lose their precious habitat and are forced into farmlands where they are killed. It is estimated that there are only 600 wild cheetah left in Zimbabwe.

These two characters arrived at the sanctuary at six weeks old. They were flea bitten, mangey and immune suppressed, and we struggled for months to get them back to good health. They have grown into fine young specimens and act as Ambassadors for their Wild cousins in Zimbabwe. Diesel is the more gregarious of the two cheetah boys, whereas Levi prefers to be left alone. We respect that and although he always accompanies Diesel in his Ambassadorial duties, he does not interact with humans
