After a magnificent sunrise, the day really took off when we came across 3 cheetah which were out hunting. We witnessed several chases providing us with lots of good photographic opportunities, but the trio were not in luck and will have to wait a little bit longer for a meal. Not far off from the cheetah, were 4 lions resting in the shade. The wildebeest were not keen to cross the river today, but we did see a few small crossings, mostly of youngsters that had been separated from their mothers. The afternoon provided some more cats, with a pride of 4 lionesses and 4 cubs out hunting zebra, but the day finished off very nicely with a good half an hour at a hyaena den site, where 8 little cubs kept our cameras clicking until the very last minute!
