The Gaborone International Airshow, known to be one of the biggest shows in the Botswana Tourism Organization (BTO)’s calendar, seeks to demonstrate pride in the country and showcase its advancement in tourism, aviation and public events over the past years. On the 6th of August 2017, Cheetah Conservation Botswana was invited to exhibit at 2017 Gaborone International Air Show held at Sir Seretse Khama International Airport. But cheetahs can’t fly, you may be saying. Although this is technically true, we attended the event mostly to reach a broader audience from the southern regions of the country in order to share the message of coexistence further afield. Though, in an interesting side note – did you know that when cheetahs are running at full speed their feet are off the ground longer than they are touching the ground? It is incredible that they run so fast that they are almost flying.
