Recently on an early morning, I had a wonderful opportunity to observe cheetahs at Rietvlei Nature Reserve, near Pretoria, for quite some time. The youngsters were running and chasing each other all over the place until one slipped from the riverbank and fell into the water. This cheetah didn’t like it one bit, quickly jumped out of the water dripping wet, immediately started shaking the water off its pelt and went to sit on the road while the others looked on quite bemused.
