Before christmas I saw Kim Wolhuters wildlife film Man- Cheetah - Wild. He gets up close and personal with a Cheetah family. This is one of the most fantastic wildlife films I have ever seen , and I have seen a lot. All Cheetah lovers, this is a must see film. If you haven't seen it, you have a great experience to come. :-)

thanks to @madaboutcheetah for bumping this up. it just "premiered" on our cableTV and we watched half of it last night. 

 

he's just nuts, crazy good nuts. we remembered him from the hyaena film, where he got so close to the hyaenas. it is as if he is a wildlife whisperer!

 

but we can't wait to finish the whole show - it's promising a lot more gems.

I have seen several of Kim Wolhuter's films and have really enjoyed them all. Just caught this one and it was no exception. I also recently read Stevenson-Hamilton's South African Eden, in which he recounts Harry Wolhuter's famous lion encounter. So it was fun to hear Kim talk about it, as well.

 

Now if only I could track down his wild dog film.

I thought Kim was filming wild dogs in Zim a few years ago but never heard of the final film. Perhaps it is only now in production?

@wilddog, it's in post production now. i'm sure it'll be as brilliant as his other films. @marg It'll be great to find out when he thinks it'll be completed.

I am following him on Facebook. I hope he's able to make a film of the hyena at Mashatu he's been keeping track of, who walks around on her forelegs.

Same here, some of the sightings like the hyaena / lion / eland skirmish sound fantastic. Can't wait for the film!

@Marks I really hope so too. the hynea has such a compelling story to tell. I'm so amazed at her ability to survive and, mate as well, with her disabilities. it'll be an inspiring film if and when he finishes it. hope it comes out quick too!

I was at Mashatu recently and we saw him filiming! At the time I didn't know who he was. The guides just told us he is a film maker studying hyenas and that he is very well known mainly because his grandfather was the first ranger in Kruger.The one thing that impressed the guides is the fact that he NEVER wears shoes. He will walk across sharp rock and thorns barefoot. Forget being famous for making internationally acclaimed films...they were amazed by his feet!

 

Now I follow him on facebook too.
