We have successfully released one of our cheetahs!
By Riana Van Nieuwenhuizen | Project Founder and Owner
Jasmin at Kuzuko
From the day Riana founded Cheetah Experience, her dream has always been to see her animals in the wild. However, releasing an animal requires a lot of time, effort and money. For this reason, we are proud to finally inform you that we have successfully released one of our female, adult cheetahs.
Jasmin was born and raised at Cheetah Experience. On the 29th of August 2018, she moved to a National Park in South Africa, called Kuzuko. She was initially kept in a smaller holding boma inside the park. A month later she underwent a soft release into a 300 ha. camp. Only 8 days after being released into the bigger camp, she made her first kill. Jasmin has been hunting ever since, with many hunts being succesful.
In other words, Riana's dream finally came true. And her dream doesn't end here. There is much more to be done. As said before, releasing an animal costs a lot of money. And this is exactly the reason why we have to thank every single one of you. This wouln't have been possible without your support and we are so grateful that you made this possible for us and the animals. Every bit helps and together we can work on a better future for these animals!
