Successful Cheetah hunt – Maasai Mara 2019

Successful Cheetah hunt! This coalition of five cheetahs is a unique feature of the Maasai Mara. Together they make an extremely powerful hunting machine. For five hours we had watched the famous five wandering across the savannah, resting in the shade of trees and watching the approaching herd of zebra with great interest. Then they burst into life as a female zebra and her foal got close. The cheetahs fanned out and disrupted the herd. Then they made their move. The first chase ended in failure probably because a single cheetah gave chase. The second involved three cheetahs and a foal was killed. Amazing wildlife action!
