Toki News

Toki is doing very well. Since he had problems getting on with the other cheetahs here on Lewa it was decided to move him onto a neighbouring farm close to the Lewa boundary. So for the last six months he has lived on Ol Donyo Farm with Stephen, his keeper. He has been hunting on his own but due to lack of prey on Ol Donyo he has been fed as well.
