The Magnificent Cheetahs In The Game Reserve

The cheetahs in Game Reserve are said to be elusive and rarely seen,  so we all didn't expect to have such a close view of this lovely big cat. Just when we thought we had missed the chance about to give up... and then someone pointed in the far, in the yellowish bush, something were moving, we were told they are cheetahs.

We were asked to stay still and quiet in the jeep, and watched the two cheetahs strolling towards us from far.  What an incredible sight!
The sun was going down while we watched the two cheetahs ambled towards us...

The cheetahs were getting nearer and nearer, but just at that moment, someone in our jeep, I think is me (LOL, was too excited at that time) standed up with the camera in hand, so the cheetahs started to run past our jeep. They were so near to us,  we could easily have stretched out a hand and touched them. I just have some quick time to snap photos of them.


It is such a real authentic experience in the bush, to stay so close to nature and this big cat, one of my lovely dream in childhood time came true....
