Traveling with researchers from the N/a’an ku se Foundation, we visited the Solitaire Guest Farm Desert Ranch where they have stationed the Namib Carnivore Conservation Centre.
Cheetahs, like the fierce female you see here, as well as leopards are rehabilitated and released into the wild. Visitors who stay at the ranch have the unique opportunity to track the wild cheetah and learn about conservation.
The scenery is golden grass and gently rolling rocky hilltops in the distance. These daytime golden hues yield sunsets of blazing color and vistas where you can see for miles.... and in those miles are cheetah, leopard, hyena, zebra, oryx, springbok and more.
As for this fierce cheetah, she was protecting her sister, and her shady spot. Do not mess with a cat's shady spot on a hot day!
