I was having a glass of wine with Dr Laurie Marker who co-founded and runs the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) when this wonderful sunset started so we rushed off to take a few pictures. The cheetah is Chewbacca, a kind of tame ambassador used for people to get a close up look and appreciate a real cheetah.Although this sort of picture is cheating (pun intended) it’s very nice to have a model that doesn’t run away. The down side is that Chewbacca then made out with my waist coat (luckily I wasn’t wearing it at the time, and not for a while after).
