This post is for a friend of mine who is having a frustrating day (you know who you are). I was saving it for a different week, but when you know someone needs a cheetah pick-me-up, you need to just share the cheetah already.
These photos are from our experience taking a bush walk with a cheetah at a nearby nature reserve. As you walk, you learn about cheetahs, about conservation, and about just how uncomfortable you may be when walking with a cheetah, with nothing between its teeth and claws and your delicate, pale-ass, sweet-tasting skin. (Okay, so only my skin tastes sweet, given the amount of sugar seeping from my pores.)
Since I first began posting here in South Africa, I have been given information on incredible cheetah organizations that I am arranging to write about, and hopefully visit one or two. In the meantime, here are photos of this magnificent cat who we walked with one day.

P.S. Is it really October, already?
