Thanks Kyle, every time I read about cheetahs it’s a real treat. This mother had her reward and raised her cubs successfully. Do you think they will stay on Londolozi? Maybe a coalition?

“Mama Cheetah” is a Big kitty! 🙂 She seems to be very comfortable and “proud” of her presence. – As are her children, They happy and look well fed! 🙂

You had front row seats with this Cheetah mom and her two sub adults. I am sure everybody who was there enjoyed the adrenaline rush when Cheetah mom caught the impala. She certainly did well and hopefully soon the two adults will be going there own way and supporting themselves. Always a good sight to see the Cheetahs, such beautiful cats. Thanks Kyle.

Having had a similar experience, I can still hear the pounding of the cheetah’s paws as the gap narrowed-amazing speed with such a quick initial burst. Her chest was heaving for several minutes after the takedown.
We have seen a few similar family constellations, but have never seen a male adult.

Oh great! Every day there is some amazing spectacle happening at Londolozi. What a successful cheetah mother who has raised her cubs to adulthood against all the odds. Just fantastic! Congratulation, Chris, on your front-row seat of this event.

What a treat you had with this sighting. Let’s hope that when these cheetah brothers form their own coalition, they hang around the Londolozi area. They are such beautiful animals.

Nothing quite like a cheetah in full throttle pursuit!!!

Fantastic-another amazing sighting! Viewing cheetahs is such a gift but to watch them ready themselves for the hunt, bolt like an Olympic sprinter and ultimately take down their prey is thrilling beyond words. The sons of this mother cheetah are as large as her now, and whilst she captured a meal for them to devour, soon they’ll have to succeed in order to survive. When do you think she’ll push them away?
