It is very difficult to assess the percentage of a chance to take a cheetah, although in the last few years we have had an unbelievably high success rate in hunting Cheetahs. It is very difficult to assess the percentage of chance to take a Cheetah, though from past years we have had a higher than 50 percent success rate on Cheetah hunts with our clients.
Cheetah hunting is challenging because a Cheetah’s territory is vast and they are constantly on the move. The density of Cheetah varies according to prey availability and Ekuja Hunting Safaris has a huge variety of game. A Cheetah only eats freshly killed meat so they don’t respond to baiting as is commonly done for Leopard or Lion.
However if you happen to come across a freshly killed antelope by Cheetahs, the chances of the Cheetahs coming back to eat their kill is very high, even if they have seen or smelled you. This is a very fortunate encounter situation and a well placed simple makeshift hide should be quickly put together on the spot for an opportunity to see them return to their kill within a pretty short period of time.
We have to mention that Cheetah hunts are mostly done on an encounter basis, it does take a bit of luck to encounter them, usually while traveling long distances by car over our territory, some tracking can also be conducted although the Cheetah is a particularly challenging animal to track for a variety of reasons. Hunting can also be done from a blind at a waterhole or known areas frequented by Cheetahs at Ekuja Hunting Safaris territory such as particular plains, play trees and scat rocks which can tremendously increase the chance of a successful Cheetah hunt.
