I had not heard of this park or this subspecies ( I know I am ignorant :( ) until this was posted on Nigerians for Wildlife FB page.

 

Fascinating bit of video taken in 2012. These cheetahs are so different from those most of us see on safari. I think we should send @madaboutcheetah on a recce trip and I will carry his cameras.

I am just pushy! I think a sighting like this is probably extremely rare.

Very good to see this. Amazes me how animals survive (or at least do their best to survive) even in areas of shrunken and shrinking habitat and hunting. They look lovely.
