Mahali Mzuri: Jay’s August stay part 5

We've got another bush update following our guest Jay who stayed in August.

We watched a hunt involving a mother cheetah and her two nearly full-grown male cubs. As inexperienced hunters, the cubs went after anything that moved. First they stalked and chased a passing group of wildebeest and zebras. That hunt was short-lived and unsuccessful.

Then they stalked a very large bushbuck -- much too large for them to to take down. But when they started chasing it, the movement scared a reedbuck out of the bush. The reedbuck is a much smaller animal, so they abandoned chasing the bushbuck, and took down the reedbuck instead. We didn't see the kill, but did see the aftermath and meal that followed.
