In more cheetah news, 2 males were recently photographed on the plains near Camelthorn, and a search of the Cheetah Zimbabwe research database failed to identify them. This is excellent news that individuals are still able to migrate long distances between different populations. These latest cheetah are in their prime, at about 4 years old.
The researchers also had an interesting sighting recently of a male who was born at Ngweshla in the Park in December 2010, and who disappeared for four years until he triggered a camera trap across the Botswana border west of Hwange in 2017. Based on recent sightings, he is now a resident in the Shumba area, near remote Nehimba lodge in the north of Hwange. Great news indeed.
