Description: After nearly 3 weeks in Kenya with no cheetah sightings, finally on our last game drive we sighted this male cheetah. He had his eye on a herd of topi but was in no hurry to make a move.

Story from behind the lens: This particular drive across the river into the Masai Mara National Reserve was memorable for the simultaneous sightings of a leopard making a move on a small wildebeest, this cheetah watching for young topi and a very newborn elephant calf all within a 2-3 km radius.
