Saba & Nairo

Two cheetah from Howletts Wild Animal Park have been translocated by The Aspinall Foundation from the UK to a new life in the wilds of their ancestral homeland of South Africa. This groundbreaking project is the first time a hand-raised cheetah has left the UK for rewilding in Africa.

Saba & Nairo, who were born at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve, left the UK in February to move to Ashia Cheetah Sanctuary to settle in and prepare for the wild. They will then move to Mount Camdeboo Private Reserve where they will undergo a rewilding process innovatively designed by the Ashia team.

None of this is possible without your support. We aim to raise £100,000 to fund the move, rewilding, release and continued monitoring of Saba & Nairo. Donating just £10 will bring the boys one step closer to their new life in South Africa.
