As @@madaboutcheetah has managed to fill 18 pages of Lebala/Lagoon images, lets set him the challenge of Kwara in the Okavango.

 

Here is a starter for 10.

Green Season 2010 - This was the time the female cheetah spent a lot of time in Kwara(between 2009 and 2011) with 6 cubs that she amazingly raised with success in such a Lion dense area.

Roan at Tsum Tsum plains ...... October 2013

 

The Kwara camps are sending a picnic lunch to guests who venture to Tsum Tsum; besides the predators there - this only water body seems to attract a variety of plains game and Elephants to come have a drink every day. Plan is to just sit and wait and watch - we were lucky with Roan. Elephant herds matching anywhere in the Linyanti.

The Swimmers - Feel very fortunate to have witnessed this. The two boys had to swim across a flooded Tsum Tsum to re-unite with the brother (Feb 2011 - which will probably remain my last sighting of them since I haven't a booking for Kwara anytime soon)

sorry to go out of turn ......... This is en route to Last Mabala @ Tsum Tsum - October, 2013. We were on a mission to find the cheetah brothers and didn't bother to stay too long here ........ Radio announcement (only one other car was coming to TT that morning; from big Kwara) and we just gave them the location and soldiered on.....
