Description: The Nne Bora, formerly known as the Tano Bora, take down a Wildebeest, after several failed attempts.

Story from behind the lens: There are always mixed emotions when you witness (and document) a kill in the wild. Death is the wild is not something to take lightly, whilst we can talk about the circle of life, there is a sharp pain you feel witnessing this. It was clear there was some heartfelt emotion amongst the rest of the wildebeest herd, as they made cautious and unsuccessful attempts to stop the Nne Bora. On the other hand, the conservationist in me surfaces; it is remarkable to have witnessed the natural wild pull such a strategically planned event, with immense patience and stealth. Whilst once the infamous five cheetah coalition, these four male cheetahs are still a strong and formidable force - combined with the fact there are less than 7,000 of these stunning cats left in the wild; it is imperative we appreciate the rarity and fortune of this moment in history.
