There have been several reports of cheetah sightings in the area of Brakwater – where we live about 16 kms (as the crow flies) from the centre of windhoek. While we’ve had plenty of spoor of feral dogs, leopard, brown hyaena and other smaller predators and scavengers, we’ve always been somewhat iffy about suspected cheetah spoor on our place, because they are so easy to confuse with those of dogs.
Just before dawn – 06h20
Alert to presence of jackals hovering around.
Feeding in a hurry.
Jackals, warthog, tawny eagles and vultures came in to feed subsequently… including a partially leucistic youngish Lappet-faced vulture
