For the topic of my bachelor thesis “ the impact of relocating leopards and cheetahs focused on behavior, social interaction and mental health“ I decided to plan a journey to South Africa for 100 days. I worked together with a few sanctuaries and also visited countless wildlife reserves. While observing them I was able to capture a huge variety of animals in their natural habitat like birds of prey, caracals, dolphins, pinguins, servals and countless insects.

One of the most memorable moments was this scenery – watching a beautiful female cheetah while she was observing her environment covered in the lights of a purple sunset.

Their incredible good eyes can spot their prey from far distances and combined with their ability to run up to 125km/h makes them very good predators.
