Masai Mara Cheetah

Yesterday on our drive around the Mara we ran across a female cheetah with four babies. The kittens were incredible cute, healthy and inquisitive. We even watched a dramatic chase by the mother cheetah to catch a small antelope. This photo was taken shorten after her successful hunt. She then called out to her cubs with a series a throaty chirping noises so they could approach and partake in the meal. Here's a photo of the mama cheetah as she waited for the cubs to come to dinner.
