Family Matters

We were rushing to reach the Serengeti campsite in Tanzania before dark when we spotted a family of Cheetah on the deserted road just a few minutes after we crossed the entry checkpoint. It seemed almost like the family was out for an evening walk; the adolescent cubs were running around gaily while the mother kept a careful watch. I clicked this picture while they were crossing the path after drinking water from a roadside puddle. As i was clicking this picture, it struck me that they were staring straight at me.

Location: Serengeti , Tanzania
