Nolari's single male cub. Entertaining for us, a bit exasperating for Nolari.

Amani's cubs in Mara North Consevancy  Early July 2016

 

 

Thanks very much for posting the photos of Amani's cubs @Lois Hild Photography!

 

I spent time with Amani in MNC in January 2016 when she was still pregnant (but about to pop).   I am glad to see that 2 cubs are still doing well as of July - and their prospects for surviving through adulthood are increasing by the day.

LIFE AND DEATH IN THE SOUTHERN SERENGETI.

Quite like this image shot near Namiri Plains Camp in July 2016. Taken against a background of scorched earth, both prey and predator appear to be looking straight at my lens. Hope it doesn't upset any members but it does reflect the reality of life on the plains.

CHEETAH CUB - 6 WEEKS OLD.

Taken the day after the image above, this was one of 4, 6 week old cubs. We watched the mother cheetah catch and kill a juvenile Serengeti Thomson's gazelle and feast for about 30 minutes before re-locating with her cubs which were hidden about 300 yards away. She led them back to the carcass and they were observed licking the prey. Seems sad that she will be lucky to raise at least one to maturity. ( Current survival rate in the Serengeti is 5% - The Serengeti Cheetah Project ). Image taken near Namiri Plains Camp.

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.

Two rather playful sub adults, taken close to Namiri Plains Camp in April 2016. Just after this sequence was taken they tried to take down a wildebeest but picked the wrong one and failed. Mum was looking on and a few moments later showed them how it was done.

I'm pleased with this one from the Mara in 2016 (Feb).  Malika's son trying to figure out if he can take down a zebra.
