Having already seen the big 5 this day, came across my first KNP cheetah with 2 cubs which walked out of the burnt scrub and blocked the road for about 10 mins. Here Mom's looking at some distant impala and deciding if it's worth the trouble.

Love this... Not sure what it is, whether it's the regal stance of the cheetah, the near-perfect match of the sky to the background, the extremely high horizon, the contrast of the smooth road with the wild bush, or a combination of all - any way, it is a great image

Great shot, not sure if this was taken in the Kruger Park but I have been there on several occassions and never been this close to Cheetah and to have seen all of the Big 5 fantastic.
