Cheetah Successfully Hunts Prey: A Photographic Chronology

 cheetah was spotted in the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya walking seemingly nonchalantly — when unexpectedly it suddenly darted into the bush; and before I knew it, it had already captured its prey, sought out a spot, and started feasting on it.

The photographs below document the hunt and kill in chronological order. This was just one of many experiences I enjoyed while on safari in Kenya.

  1. john says:

    You were very fortunate. The elephant grass makes spotting cheetahs and leopards, unless they are in a tree, very hard.

      I have already been told how fortunate I was by a number of people, john. Spotting the animals almost seemed too easy.

      Perhaps the reason is because the Masai Mara National Reserve was not crowded…?!?

      I have much more to post about the safari — including photographs. Please stay tuned…
