Back to Mara after a long break, with really heavy rains. The landscape is very green, all the rivers are full of water and flowing fast, the roads are often impassable. It’s a unusually long rainy season in Mara. As I was going to the airstrip to pick my guest I came across the Cheetah Narasha (aka Alama), with her two tiny cubs. We followed her the whole day and saw a nice chase. Unfortunately she is limping from a wound, nothing too serious it seems, but she is very thin and struggling to get food. Hopefully she’ll succeed hunting soon.
