The perilous 1,000-mile journey to save Africa’s endangered black rhinos
28 Oct 2022
The milestone reintroduction of four cheetahs into Maputo Special Reserve has reached a triumphant conclusion, as the majestic cats bounded their way into their 104 200 hectare new home on 22 October. This followed three weeks of acclimatising in bomas in the reserve. The cheetahs will now take their rightful place in the ecosystem, where they will play an important role in ensuring ecological equilibrium.
In another victory for cross-border conservation, a series of successful wildlife translocations saw 27 Zebra and 62 blue wildebeest safely making the 1 250 km journey from Kruger National Park in South Africa to Zinave National Park in Mozambique.
