Djibouti Cheetah Refuge





Last week I visited the Cheetah Refuge.  It was a short bus ride from the camp.  The place is an animal refuge, not a zoo.  They open to the public for just a few hours in the late afternoon, three days a week.  The refuge has 6 cheetahs, 2 caracals, ostriches, tortoises, gazelles, a falcon, and other local wildlife that have settled inside its boundaries (mostly birds). One of the cheetahs (pictured) was very much a ham, he seemed to enjoy having his photo taken.  A good way to spend a few hours.
