Kapama Private Game Reserve: Two new cheetahs released into the reserve

The Kapama Private Game Reserve, situated just out of Hoedspruit in South Africa's Limpop province, recently introduced two new cheetahs into the reserve. The animals, a mother and her daughter, are originally from Mountain Zebra National Park in the Eastern Cape, but spend the last year already at the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC), which is located within the Kapama Private Game Reserve.
The Kapama Private Game Reserve spreads from the R40 on the west to the Thornybush boundary to the east, and from the Eastgate Airport road to the north to the Klaserie Dam on the south.
The reserve's 13000 hectares are home to 42 mammal species including the famed 'Big 5' - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino, and approximately 350 bird species.
