Thanda’s three month old Cheetah cubs were on a early morning walk down the road with their mum and the Thanda guests had a good look at them.
When the cubs are this young we do not view them “off-road” so this was a very special treat not only for the guests, but also for all trackers and guides who got to see them that morning.

Chiara had the right answer first – congratulations!
When I left Thanda at sunrise our two male Cheetah walked directly towards me. In this picture the “visible” Cheetah’s breath is a sign for a cold winter’s morning in Kwazulu Natal.
I spent an enjoyable day at a hide in Mkuze Game Reserve and I will post a few of today’s images in the near future :-).
… and thanks for all the kind birthday wishes!
When one is taking close-up pictures of two male Elephants sparring it feels a bit like taking pictures of two giants. In this case the two young bulls were close enough to merit the use of a wide angle lens which is not used too often for wildlife photography :-).
The Thanda guests on my vehicle and on the vehicle in the picture enjoyed this action-filled sighting.
