This was in December 2010. The previous Cheetah kill we shared with lots of other cars, but something we were very grateful for, was that we were the first car in line. This sighting we were all alone.

The three Cheetahs were under a tree just north of Kamqua. Baby Springbok and mom were across the road. Mom saw some Springbok Rams walking past and off the tramp went and left baby all alone under the tree.

Mommy Cheetah saw her chance to teach her kids some lessons in catching a Springbok.

She only chased the lamb out from behind the tree (photo one) and then she sat down and let the kids take over!!

Image

It took quite some time for them to finally catch the lamb!! lots of time for me to take lots and lots of photos!!
