Why Condor and Cheetah?

Andean condor

No fence between us and the cheetah. No zoom lens - that's how close we were!

No fence between us and this cheetah. No zoom lens – that’s how close we were!

These are the two iconic animals of the places we are visiting on our great adventures. Condors grace the skies of the Andean mountains of South America. Cheetahs sprint across the Namibian savannah. Both are incredibly beautiful and powerful, and both are endangered species. We are blessed to have this time with them.


Beginning this blog at the end of our time in South America and the start of our time in Africa, we intend to write more about our experiences in Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile as time goes on. But for now, we begin with the present – Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF), Otjiwarongo, Namibia.
