Kisaru mother to six 5 mth old cubs, puts the last strangle hold on a pregnant  Impala she has just taken down during a heavy rain storm. The cubs are ever vigilant, as this can often be a time when other larger predators can quickly move in.
Within 5 mins of this kill, she then managed to bring down a Thompsons Gazelle, also pregnant. What a super mum and what an afternoon!

What an amazing mother, no wonder she has still got so many cubs after 5 months - we know how high the mortality rate is for cheetah. Wonderful shot of this family of survivors, Marc!
