DAYS 5-7, Feel Rejuvenated at Samara Transfer to Samara Private Game Reserve in the Great Karoo. This area comprises 4 of South Africa's 7 biomes; the area offers a rich and varied nature experience. You may also have a chance to see fossils that pre-date the dinosaurs and ancient bushman paintings. Samara Private Game Reserve is situated on 70000ha of land, giving the cheetahs in their cheetah conservation programme lots of space to run around. The cheetahs at Samara are free from competition from other predators and thrive in this rehabilitative habitat. One such cheetah is Sibella, a cheetah that defines the very spirit of the game reserve. After narrowly surviving hunters and then being savagely treated in captivity, she was rescued and underwent life-saving surgery. Since being rehabilitated she has raised 18 cubs, contributing 2% to the wild cheetah population of South Africa.
