Dear Ifubesi

I spoke to the Section Ranger in that area who also agreed that he once saw them. He is of the opinion that it is a mother with five nearly full grown cubs.

Thanks for the update StephensL! :) I will pass on the info to my family who saw them. It would be interesting to hear what happens to all the cubs. But it surely must be a remarkable mother cheetah to raise 5 cubs in that area!

it's, I think, a female, the collar is a radio collar to follow this Cheetah, to study, like it was until 2 years ago in the Kgalagadi
but I don't who is studying Cheetahs in Kruger :hmz:
