Lucky to have 5 cheetahs on my vehicle at a photo safari last week, one cub even kissed my lens!
I gave one camera body to a second vehicle to record the whole thing and capture some video. What an amazing experience, Let me know if you want to see more!

Awesome experience I am sure. While most photos would have to be close ups, I am sure you got some good ones. Times like those is when you put the camera down and just take in the whole experience of having 5 wild Cheetahs that close. Envious and would like to see some more photos from your safari.

Cool pics and video. Honestly didn't even realize how chill cheetahs were until I read the article on the mother who dropped her child in a cheetah enclosure (slightly off topic sorry...)

Amazing pictures... now I have my 5 year old asking when we can go on that kind of safari :)

Thanks, the first time around It happened to me (with one cheetah) and i was hosting a safari I wasnt taking many shots just enjoying the moment as you say, now im more used to the experience so its easier to switch cameras, lenses etc while keeping a level head. still very exciting ofcourse!

I will post more here my FB page also has lots and im heading back in October
