Female with 5 cubs on S 21.
We thought five were rather unusual and wondered how many would survive, but the photos above of four adults together at Gudzani gave me hope !
The best thing about this sighting is that we had them all to ourselves for about twenty minutes !

Here are a couple we encountered heading south just before Tshokwane on the 07Aug 2012.
It appears that the mother was training the juvenile to hunt.

Love all these Cheetah photos.

what do you think, are these three brothers or a mother with two "cubs"? The one in front looks a tad bit taller to me...



filmed on Oct 14, near Satara

thanks

Great clip Ice. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Late one evening I saw these two Cheetah on the edges of the bush at Nkaya Pan. Mother and sub-adult sibling were stalking Impala in the thick bush. The female launched her attack further into the bush never to re-appear. I think she caught one of the Impala but the bush was too thick for confirmation and I had to leave to make camp before the gates closed.

Coalition of three Cheetahs found on the S126 5km west of the H1-3 on 26th December. Many thanks to the guys that stopped us making a U-turn and return to the main road before reaching those Cheetahs. Lovely to hear them communicate with each other :D

Grass more than 1 metre high around P/Kop recently caused this one to survey the area from a height .
