Updates from Martin

Welcome to our newest update on Martin the cheetah!

We can happily announce that Martin is still living his best life here at our animal orphanage. The grass in his enclosure is pretty high now and he loves nothing more than to hide in there and lurk at the people walking by. During the dog walk every morning he sits by the gate to greet the children and volunteers passing by.

The kids who behave well during the week get the chance to watch Martin being fed on Thursday instead of helping with the animal stabling. Watching this huge cat catch his dinner is quite the sight! Most of these kids have never seen a cheetah in real life before coming to DAKTARI, so they’re always very excited to watch the spectacle on Thursday afternoon!

Did you know that cheetahs prefer flat land? They love roaming around in open areas and only rarely live in the woods. They can run at a speed of over 100km/h in the wild and mostly hunt on their own. All the reason more why Martin doesn’t mind being a resident at our camp, he has everything his big heart desires here.
