The animals and scenery of the Okonjima Nature Reserve:
A Kori Bustard, the heaviest bird that is capable of flying.
A family of baboons wandering off into the bush. We’d spotted several types of antelopes, birds, and these baboons before we even arrived at reception.
At the beginning of our cheetah tracking, we saw these two warthogs engaged in a battle while two guinea fowl crossed the road behind them.
A huge millipede.
A rabbit hiding behind some plants.
We stopped at an overlook and the guide’s assistant used the tracking equipment to see if we were close to a cheetah.
Our vehicle for the morning.
It was a struggle to get a good shot of them, but this was really just the beginning of our giraffe experience in Namibia.
A kudu licks her lips after eating some tasty grass.
A male kudu.
The cheetah we tracked and her catch.
The cheetahs on this reserve were once trapped, held in captivity, or orphaned. During the rehabilitation phase, they roam freely and hunt for themselves as this one was doing. If they are able to become self-sustaining hunters, they are released back into the wild.
