Cheetah kill at Masai Mara

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Sumit Dayal

My first game drive and I witnessed a cheetah kill. We saw the cheetah from a distance. The cheetah came towards us, passed right in front of our vehicle, sat in a bush studying his prey and sprang towards a smaller wildebeest. I wish I could share all the photos but I love the look of the cheetah in this particular one.

Location: Masai Mara
