Today involved a lot of driving on very rough roads and paths. Not a lot of animals but what we did see was spectacular. We saw 2 cheetah brothers. Brothers often pair off for life. Cheetahs and lions. They do mate but stay with their brother cheetah.

Suddenly they sat up. Alert that 100’s meters away was a lion. Lions do kill cheetah. They usually don’t eat them. Lions prefer herbivores not other meat eaters.

So we drove over to the lion. As he sat under a tree. We got within 10-15 feet. Didn’t bother him at all.

We called it an early afternoon and rested.
