A gemsbok intervention
During a holiday in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park during August this year, Verity Kriegler was fortunate enough to watch three cheetahs, a mom and two sub adults, stalk springbok and eventually pounce on a newborn. It was also amazing to witness a gemsbok chasing the cheetahs, as if defending the baby springbok.
The Kgalagadi National Park is truly unique in so many ways. At first glance the rugged dunes and huge expanse look harsh and incapable of providing sanctuary to the wide range of species that it does. When you look deeper however, you see it is bursting with life that has adapted beautifully to thrive in this environment.
