Description: Namunyak with her Cubs

Story from behind the lens: We had been looking for cheetah in Ol Kinyei late in our afternoon game drive we found Namunyak with her five cubs just as it was beginning to rain. She was settled in the bushes for cover as there were hyena near by. As we watched they all began to pile on to her as she cleaned them.
