The fastest among the African cats is the cheetah, which is at home in all savanna landscapes of Namibia. Cheetahs reach a shoulder height of about 80 cm and weigh over 50 kg. In the short term, they are expected to reach speeds of around 100 kilometers per hour during the chase. Hidden in the grass or sneaking up on their prey, however, it is difficult to spot the predominantly diurnal hunters.
Usually the female is seen together with juveniles and "semi-strong", the males, on the other hand, individually, but this also seems to depend on the preferred available prey: If mainly larger animals are torn, cheetahs also hunt in larger groups.
