The 'Queen of the Mara'
Cheetahs are usually found singly or in small groups of mother with Cubs. When running they can reach speeds of over 70 mph. They are often seen stood on small mounds, searching the horizon for prey (which is usually Gazelle), or larger predators. Some Cheetah have taken a shine to jumping onto the safari jeep's bonnet or roof to scan the horizon.
