Camp: Phinda Vlei Lodge

Leisure Time

This picture shows five cheetahs frolicking on an enormous dead tree stump. These big cats spent almost an hour playing on this stump in the early morning. The stump was big enough for them to pass each other on it. The group seemed to realize that this was "their" tree. The tree is isolated all by itself in the tall grasses 100 yards or more from the dense brush.

Phinda Game Reserve  is situated in the lush Maputaland region in northern KwaZulu-Natal bordering the World Heritage Site -- The  Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park.  Scenic Rivers, floodplains and open pans make up the bulk of seven distinct habitats found in the Phinda Reserve.   Phinda is possibly the best cheetah viewing anywhere.
