Cheetahs in the Serengeti. 2014.

October 15, 2014

On an all-day drive in the heat of the southern Serengeti, we encountered several separate groups of cheetahs, comprising eleven individuals, each one a distinctive and beautiful embodiment of speed and grace. The cheetah population in sub-Saharan Africa is designated as "vulnerable to extinction," due in part to loss of habitat. We learned that the Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute runs a cheetah watch campaign to track sightings of individual cheetahs, identified by their spot patterns, so we're sending these images to them, along with our notes.
