Make way jaguar, tis a cheetah on Land Rover

Bobby-Jo Clow, an ardent photographer delights many with photographic safaris ideal for first time travellers or regular safari goers. While all animal pictures get our attention, this set of images will be remembered for long.

In Bobby-Jo Clow’s words, “I was on safari in the Seronera area of the Serengeti when I came across a mother cheetah and her two juvenile offspring. All of a sudden the two juvenile cheetah started coming towards the safari vehicle that I was in. One of the cats walked straight past the driver’s door and then loitered around the front of the vehicle. The driver and fantastic safari guide, Exaud Marandu, turned to me and told me that the cheetah was possibly going to jump on to the bonnet of the Land Rover.”

The photographer quickly switched to a wide angle lenses and focused on to the car bonnet and the cheetah popped up. Excitement being the highpoint of the hour, despite her hands shaking, Bobby-Jo was able to capture the cheetah as it ducked and peered through the windscreen to see who else was in the car.

In the meantime the young male relaxed and rested his front paws through the car roof. After hanging around for about 5 minutes, they responded to their mother’s call and walked away. Picture courtesy
