Tanzania, Africa - 7B

Hi, As we continued our game drive we came across a family of Cheetahs.

It appeared that a mother had killed a young zebra and brought her 4 cubs to the kill (above and 6 below).  We remained watching as they fed for 1/2 an hour.  They would eat for a few minutes and then walk away.  After a few minutes they would come back.  Based on the size of their bellies they had been eating for quite awhile.  We were the only vehicle watching.

As we approached a kopie Mkenda spotted a couple of Tawny Eagles; one of them in a tree.

Further on was huge harem of Impala with

the male keeping watch.

Later we came upon this cub and

a couple of females.  It was interesting how many times we saw lionesses on their backs.


If I could add a balloon to the photo the zebra would be saying "gotta keep my eye on this guy."

Finally, another pretty sunset.  Thanks for looking.
