The Cheetah mother named Malaika with her four one-year old cubs resided in the double crossing area for most of June and early July. The grass in that area is quite short, as maasai cattle regularly graze at night here. One late morning she sneaked into a patch of tall grass in proximity of a big herd of Impalas. She waited patiently for a good hour, until she finally took off towards the Impalas. We were positioned very far away and opposite the herd, and it was thrilling to see her single out a female Impala and chase her straight in our direction. The impala leaped and turned frequently but Malaika with her amazing speed kept on closing in on her. She finally reached her prey just a few meters away from our car, laid her paws on her back and knocked it off balance. The cubs joined her soon after she finished suffocating the Impala.
