So why did I go to a Zoo with all this wild life in the North. Well, for years as a child my mother could not figure out why I continued to wet the bed. Little did she know I had myself convinced there were WILD CHEETAH's living under my bed between sunset and sunrise ( so much for educational television). This is why I traveled to Mokolodi, to pet Duma and Letotse. (Orphaned Cheetah's).
Duma and Letotse were orphaned when there mother was shot by a farmer (common practice to protect livestock)
We started with a game drive through the reserve early in the morning. Along the way we spotted a family of Giraffes( see the baby nursing photo), Warthogs, Elephants, antelopes and Cheetah's. If you are not interested in visiting the Cheetah's you can do a self game drive for 45pula, camp (not cheap), or just visit for dinner (good food ).
