Sniktawk - LOL - yep, that is the reason!! They had a good fill until that Hyena turned up. I got a few shots of the feed but nothing as clear as your wonderful shot :)

 

Nick - how many of Shakira's cubs survived? We watched her on Big cat diaries and I think at the end of the show there were only 3 left. Actually we were in the Mara when she had them, but as the cubs we still so small we weren't allowed near them (plus the guides didn't want to attract the attention of teh Marsh Pride).

 

Also, how many of Honey's boy are still around. When we were in the Mara in Sept 08 the 3 were still a unit. Very impressive chaps. Although after making a Topi kill one day they got mugged about 5 mins later by 20 Hyena. The one brother did attack the Hyena but he was outnumbered and legged it in the end.

 

Cheers. Whorty

Looking forward to it!

Those 3 brothers are great hunters. I'm sure you will get some good leopard sightings too. I quite like Rekero's Land Cruisers because the side window and also the roof are available as camera supports.

Thanks Nick

This was my one reservation re. the vehicles in Kenya/Tanzania, being spoilt with the open types offered in Bots, Zam & RSA. I hope I can adapt to the closed in type offered @ Rekero.

Would you happen to have some images of the vehicles to show me? Were you using just a bean bag?

 

Can send them here if you like:

Cheers

Many lovely shots, truly award winning. I am especially partial to the youngsters and will add one photo here. I found that I occasionally wondered about these little guys for years. Since I dug this one up I'm making it my personal photo.

Lynn, nice pic!!! Would love to see a pic or two of our friend from the Lebala/Selinda boundary. Please post when time permits. I've been reading all sightings report waiting to hear of her whereabouts and a possible new litter.

Lynn. What do you think when you see this? Look at the grass.

I even have one looking the same way as yours I think, and I believe only two cheetah cubs are visible in that shot, which is why I kept this one instead. It's hidden away in backup storage somewhere but I may look it out. I took it end of September 2008.

I have been told that the Cheetah with 6 cubs is known as Duma, a daughter of Shakira (Big Cat Diary star!)
