~ Derek and Meshak rapidly spoke in their language, driving off to an area without any tree cover. Two Gyps africanus were on a tall snag watching activity within the grassy expanse. A mother Acinonyx jubatus, Cheetah, and her three cubs were feeding on the carcass of a freshly killed Aepyceros melampus, Impala. The cheetah mother turned out to be an old friend from the July, 2015 safari, when Anthony Gitau guided ZHU Jinjie and I in Masai Mara. After lunch and a view of the Mara River crossing, we'd headed into a grassy area, finding a mother cheetah with four tiny cubs. In both cases the mother cheetah was Amani, now with one less cub than in the previous year.
