Wow. This is one very rare sighting. Another extraordinary mating ritual recorded on camera, this time in the Kalahari.

26-year old, Juan Venter, told Latestsightings.com, “The footage was taken at Tswalu. When we arrived at the scene, we heard a lot of shouting and screaming and it looked like they were fighting but it was two males in a coalition on the same female with both males trying to mate at the same time.

"This was the reason for all the noise. When I realised what was busy happening my heart bounced out of my chest. I had no words. I just told my guests to keep on filming because they will never see this again.

"The cats ended up crawling into a bush hiding, as cheetah are incredibly shy when mating and we didn't want to bother them as, you need to respect nature. I have friends in the industry that have been guiding for more than 15 years and they have never seen this happen.

"As for me, it’s possibly the first and the last time that I will ever see something like this again. The only time this is seen, is in captivity. I almost want to say that the chance of seeing a pangolin is better than to see this happening. 

"This experience had a big impact on my career as I have seen many rare things but personally, this became for sure No.1 on my personal bests."
