Serval vs Cheetahs

This serval found itself in the wrong spot at the wrong time. Or so it thought…
Watch the incredible sighting as a lone serval managed to keep 4 cheetahs at bay and survived to tell the tale!
This once in a lifetime sighting was captured by 24-year-old Occupational therapist, Mika Solomon and 23-year-old analyst, Gavin Newfield, while on a holiday with Ivory Tree Lodge at Pilanesberg Game Reserve in South Africa.

Gavin tells the story:
"Upon approach, we saw a distant wildebeest mimicking the aesthetic of a buffalo, this brought the vehicle to a halt. Mika tapped my shoulder, pointing out that a servaI lay ahead. Having never seen a serval, I immediately dismissed the idea that the wildebeest could have been a buffalo and turned my attention to this gorgeous creature."
"Quickly, the attention of our driver was caught, whispers echoed a silent Hilux as mentions of a cheetah started to creep through and low and behold, 4 cheetahs, a serval and a "buffalo" characterized what I consider to be the greatest sighting of my life so far."

“Shocked, a need to both film and be in the moment, the sighting held my attention like the nerd in the front seat at school. It was an incredible sighting.”

“The sighting ended when the serval took an opening to exit the battle for territory, as the cheetah recognized the serval’s attempt, he shot towards the serval’s path, but, despite the rustling of leaves, nothing of those two was to be seen again.”

“Perhaps out of peer pressure, the other 3 cheetahs chased the wildebeest beyond human sight and just like that it was over.”

    The fact that a Serval stood his ground against a Cheetah makes me sick. I truly hope Cheetahs go extinct within my lifetime. They are the biggest cowards of the animal kingdom. They dont deserve to live 😡

    cheetahs are not aggressive felines, they do not attack except to hunt. they have no aggression of lions, leipards or hyenas. their character is docile

    the jumping king versus the running king. i think its lucky it didnt run into a leopard or lion. Cheetahs seem to be a little less aggressive.

    I think the cheetahs were more curious about the serval than actually wanting to kill it. Servals might be smaller but they can actually be pretty vicious when scared.

    The cheetah is thinking" Oh my goodness! So the legend is true! There are midgets around these parts! They look exactly like us but they are so much smaller! .. But l must be extremely careful; this midget might just be a hungry murderer, out on a killing spree! An expert-killer, looking for something to eat, who just happened to stumble upon helpless old me!"... "And now I am wondering if these hungry, midget-cheetas can outrun us larger, juicy cheetas!"
