This was the only cheetah I saw in Sabi Sands last October.

It was a great sighting and we watched him for about half an hour but the light was awful.

Another shot from my one cheetah sighting in Sabi Sand.

 

We watched this young male make a half hearted attempt to catch an impala. He spent about half an hour stalking it but when it cam to the chase either he was very inept or he wasn't very hungry.

This is from a sighting in Maasai Mara a year or so ago.

@@marg - there was an interesting study made by the Serengeti cheetah project on Lions and Cheetah ............ apparently, the cheetah dens in the Serengeti are usually in Lioncentric zones ....... If you are on FB - look for their web page. Lots of interesting stuff.

 

That leads me to the question - why the lower Cheetah sightings in Botswana in recent times? ........... Probably the water levels.

Interesting....last September in the Selinda area we saw the two cheetah brothers. We had been in this area twice before and this was the first sighting.

At Mombo we had not previously seen cheetah. And, this sighting was the first that they had had there in five or six years. They were in an area away from lions. And, the thinking there is that because the lion population is so large that the cheetah do not inhabit the area. In regard to the water levels when we were there in 2010 the water was still coming. This last year was totally different and was more normal. I think that they will go wherever the food source is plentiful and the competition not too keen.

I made this image in Mara of a mother Cheetah with its sub-adult cubs just before it set out on a hunt. They were right next to our vehicle which gave me an opportunity to use a wide-angle lens.

Loving all the cheetah pics! Such sleek and athletic cats.

 

Watched this female take down a tommy right in front of us in the Mara Triangle last year.

A herd of zebra were not letting her out of their sight.

This one is FRESH from the Mara Triangle in Kenya.

She hunted and killed twice in two days to feed her 5 cubs, all right in front of the group of photographers I was hosting on a photo safari.

@@Morkel Erasmus - saw this on your facebook posts too ..... Spectacular!!! So, as far as I know there are 3 sets of cheetah cubs in the Mara - Malaika, Miale and this lady (whose name I can't quite remember; starts with a K from memory).
