Unlike the female of the species, male cheetah are more sociable with around 60% of them forming coalitions. Such coalitions generally consist of between two to three males.However, the Madikwe Game Reserve coalition consists of four beautiful male cheetahs, ensuring a spectacular sighting whenever they are encountered.
