These were taken on a camera phone by guests at Rhino Safari Camp mid Sept - whilst out fishing :rolleyes:

This is a rare sighting for the Matusadona - normally once or twice a year in Aug/Sept.

Nice! I lucked out with cheetah on my first safari in Kenya, we saw a mum and five tiny cubs as well as a few other adults. That was in 2006! It has taken me three trips to Kruger to see wild Cheetahs in Southern Africa. Did not see them in Botswana or in Mana Pools either. Unlike @@stokeygirl our two brothers had already eaten and were definitely not going hunting! Too fat!!

 I loved your cheetah chase sequence, such wonderful light and colours.

 

Makes me hesitant about posting anything as mundane as this but I will anyway.

We came across this gorgeous young cheetah with its mother in Samburu.

Quite a cutie

I didn't take this, but it's my favorite cheetah pic. It was taken by a motion-sensor camera as part of the Snapshot Serengeti research. I love how you can see the cheetah's eyelashes.

@@stares@animals Welcome to Safaritalk and the cheetah thread here is very popular. Are you involved with the Snapshot Serengeti Research Project?

Not officially, but I have classified thousands of images and contributed financially to the project. They sent me this image as a thank-you for contributing. They said I could use/share it as I liked.

Thank you: it's a great image and a great project. Can you tell us more about what it involves in a new topic? Thanks, Matt.

Sure. I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned on this site before!

It was mentioned briefly here, perhaps you could provide some more detailed insight by updating that topic instead? Look forward to hearing more, thanks, Matt.

I'm guessing one of the blood brothers in their prime, Geoff ........ They were awesome! Would give you the goose chase; one day they'll be in Savuti - then when you are about to leave for home they'd pop up all the way up north in Lagoon........ Ofcourse, the Selinda concession was right in the centre of their territory.

@@madaboutcheetah Yep, one of the so-called "Blood Brothers" but not quite in their prime, they had lost a brother about a month before. Incredible home range too, on that trip I'd seen them near Savuti bush camp, along the spillway near Duma Tau, numerous locations in the Selinda concession and then way up at lagoon.

@@Soukous Where were these Martin? Perhaps Safaritalkers have seen members from their recent family tree...

These were taken in the Maasai Mara, right over in the western region of the park.

These two brothers were in the Selinda area in September.

Yes - that was the year of the snake bite that supposedly got that third brother?

This was our third time in the area and the first to see cheetah. We are always looking for the dogs but sometimes there are other unexpected surprises.
