Very AWESOME!
And~ very awesome memories for me! I was there years back, and the Cheetahs were the easiest to capture on film...they allowed us to drive on up to them!
Love this shot!

Such gorgeous creatures! And aren't they the fastest things on four legs?

And my crazy mind goes off in strange directions but if these were located in the American west, one of them might say to the other, "Ah saw yew with that other beast! Ahm divorcin' yew! Yer nuthin' but a cheetah!"

Sorry, I couldn't resist. You may hit the delete button if you gag too hard!

Meanwhile, have a great weekend!
