Our guide Veronica tells us about the first cheetah cubs encounter with volunteers

Cheetah Cubs

That morning we headed out to look for the female cheetah that recently had two cubs. She had stopped denning and was starting moving the cubs around in the thicket, so it became more difficult for us to find them. The volunteers had not been fortunate to see the cubs yet.


LEO Africa's approach to a sustainable lifestyle

LEO Africa’s main focus is on wildlife monitoring, conservation and educating our volunteers and others on sustainable living. Our aim is to reduce the amount of plastic that is used in our daily lives, as well as being careful not to waste natural resources. We have set ourselves a sustainability policy; we try and instil these values with our volunteers and ourselves. We are aware that in our society plastic is used a lot, but we could all try to reduce its usage by paying attention to the items we buy and their packaging.


Dangerous Cheetah Encounter! The males meet the female for the first time!

Cheetah Fighting

This story starts a few months earlier, when a female cheetah was released in the reserve. We were waiting for the moment when she would meet our resident coalition of two male cheetahs.

Sitting with Elephants - Sarah Foster

Many ancient traditions teach us that to find the answers to our deepest questions we must sit quietly on the earth and observe nature. Life's lessons will unfold in front of our eyes if we simply allow ourselves to take it all in with an open mind and unified heart.
