Masai Mara - September 2011 - Cheetahs

Post  Anne-Marie1981 on Fri Sep 23, 2011 2:36 pm

On the way back to camp after our first morning drive (which included breakfast out in the bush) we found this lovely mother and cub. Again we were quite fortunate with us being only one of two cars there. It was a rare hot morning, and these two had found some shade in some small bushes.


Here is the gorgeous little cub

And Mum having a little roley poley in the sun

One of my favourite pictures of the whole safari

Those are fabulous AM, how lovely to be able to just sit there, and spend time with them, without a load of cars around. Both Mrs S, and I think Mum, and Cub pic is brilliant. Thanks for sharing

If I can make somebody smile, my day has been worthwhile

Awwww AM they are adorable and lovely photos cheers

By the sounds of things cheetah have not been very easy to spot these days in the Mara so great you got so see a mum and a relatively young cub. You can still see it's 'fluff' at the scruff of it's neck showing how young it is and also it's gorgous face which looks so young and innocent I love you

I Agree with Mr & Mrs WS re the mum & cub picture, brilliant

Oh yes, Mum & Cub pic gets the I love you I love you from me too, it really is a magical photo AM, it's one you want to keep looking at. I love mum having a roley poley too, nice relaxed behaviour from her which is wonderful. As Doogs says, it must have been so nice not to have been one of many cars sitting and watching them, it must make the cheetah more relaxed not to have so many vehicles around them. I must say the first cub picture is also so lovely and he is just I love you I love you I love you
