Cheetah and her cubs search for prey – Maasai Mara 2024

Cheetah and her cubs search for prey. In the Naboisho Conservancy, Maasai Mara, Kenya this cheetah and her four six month old cubs had not eaten for a few days. We tracked them as they searched for suitable prey. Not long after this sequence was shot, the mother set off at pace through some dense bushes. We were not able to follow her nor could we see what was happening. We heard later that she had successfully taken down an impala but within seconds the kill had been taken from her by hyenas. Even though this cheetah and her cubs search for prey had been successful, they went hungry for yet another day. It is a hard life being a cheetah!
