The NamibRand Lady Cheetah is Back in Touch!

I didn't expect to hear anything further from this cheetah, or to be able to make any more updates, however the situation has changed again.  I've been able to re-establish contact with the satellite collar and hope that this will be the first of many more weekly updates.  

 

Since it has been a little while since the last report, I am including data for the whole of March and have also attached two maps (a close-up, and a more general area map showing where she is in relation to the NamibRand Reserve and Namib-Naukluft National Park.  

 

For the past several weeks the female appears to have been operating exclusively on the farm of Lahnstein and has been sticking to the river valley in the south of the property.  Our most recent data point, recorded at 03:36 this morning, places her 58 km NE of the NamibRand Reserve, 55 km NW of Maltahohe, 41 km SE of the Namib-Naukluft border, and 1.5 km N of the Lahnstein border with Kamkas.
