Savanna and her sister Nip, and her two brothers Tuc and Scamp were found on the perimeter fenceline of the Okonjima Nature Reserve (2010). They were observed for a few days until it was obvious there was no mother around and attempts were made to catch them. They were around three months old when they came to AfriCat. Savanna is the larger female in the group.
