Description: The three remaining cheetahs of the former Tano Bora are attempting to cross the Talek River this morning.

Story from behind the lens: The cheetah brothers have become famous as the Tano Bora in the Masai Mara. A cheetah coalition of 5 male cheetahs taking on the large mammals in the Mara themselves. Unfortunately, the group had lost two members in the last few months. That morning we met the three at the Talek River. However, due to the high water it was difficult to find a good place to cross the river. In addition, dangers lurked everywhere, such as hippos and crocodiles. Again and again the 3 tried to find a good place to cross. Eventually they managed to cross the river unscathed.
