After watching the frenzy of wildebeest and zebra darting back and forth across the Mara river, crocs nipping at them underwater, and leopards waiting for them on the other side, we didn’t think any more action was possible…but in the Maasai Mara there is no cap on the adventures in a day. Enter the greatest cheetah encounter ever!! We found a mother and baby cheetah relaxing in the shade of a shrub and were totally content enjoying this peaceful moment but then they set out for the hunt. The mother moved with incredible grace and efficiency as she sought out a better vantage point, while the baby scrambled to follow. The mound she was using was not cutting it, so this cheetah found a new lookout spot…the roof of our car!!!!
Watch this beautiful beast makes its way towards Anne’s head and down the hood of our safari vehicle. For more on our Maasai Mara experience, read the full blog
