Big Cat Encounters

We are ready for our close ups
We are ready for our close ups
While staying at Waterberry Lodge, Caroline, one of the staff, mentioned that there was a place where we could walk with cheetahs!  I was extremely excited and signed up for an encounter with Mukuni Big 5.  

The handlers introduced me to Susan, a lithe, purring gorgeous specimen of a cheetah.  After some time getting to know her and learn more about her behavior, we went for a walk.

I was so enthralled with the experience, that I brought a friend back the next day to have an encounter with the lions.  This day, my friend Philly and I were introduced to an 18-month old brother and sister pair.  The guides were wonderful in talking about lion behavior and how we get to share their space for a short period.  

I would highly recommend these encounters.  It is a great learning experience and you walk away with a better appreciation for the animals and conservation work.
