There are dedicated game drives at Sanctuary Kusini with the specific purpose of finding and identifying cheetah. Once spotted, guests are encouraged to photograph the cheetah, and leave copies of the sighting photos which are then passed on to the research team. Feedback is then provide when possible to our guests on which cheetah were observed.
Since the program's launch at Sanctuary Kusini in 2009 guests have submitted 50 usable sightings, equating to 32% of all recorded sightings by the project. Further commitment to the project offers our guests a fascinating insight into the lives of the cheetah during their time on a Serengeti safari, along with increasing the valuable research required to conserve the habitat of this amazing cat.
