Drawing out your sorrow
In slow-releasing tendrils
I tend to your wounds
And bathe you in tender love."

Up close..

A closer look at one of Zimanga’s big guns. When seen at this range and level you do honestly feel humbled by their size and power.
Their muscles rippling under their skin as they reach down to drink..
Effortless power..

Adoring,

Fast becoming one of my favorite things to do..
- Spending time with these little cheetah, and watching them grow..

So obviously they have become the focus of most of my images. And i dont mind at all..

They are doing well and promise to be taking up a whole bunch more of my time as i follow their lives and the endless struggle of survival.

Meek and Mild.. 

A little cheetah cub looks up at its mother as if to ask for more.
They were feeding off a kill that she had made moments before..

- lions -  hyenas and even vultures will drive a cheetah off its kill, 
so cheetah must often eat quickly or flee to avoid confrontations.

Lone adults may hunt every two to five days, compared to a female with cubs that may make a kill daily. An adult cheetah eats on average about 2.5 - 3 kg of meat per day.

Waiting, patiently..

A lion sits and scans the surrounding area, maybe hoping to hear the females making a successful kill or for some lost soul to wonder too close.. Often as seen here male lion need to set out by themselves patrolling the boundaries of their territory. Making sure no intruders are there.
They might need to hunt during these escapades..
studies show that male lions use dense vegetation to hunt their prey, while females cooperate together to hunt.Male lions also tend to hunt alone, making their surprise strategy necessary.

Little one.

A young cheetah cub sits enjoying the last rays of sunshine on a cool afternoon.
With 3/4 cubs having survived a altercation with the lions our 'new'
Female cheetah is still doing a fantastic job. Each day brings them closer to being able to fight for survival, not only as individuals but as a species.

Brother.
The dominant pair of Zimanga

> The reason for lions to form a coalition is for protection - When they are forced out of their natal pride everyday is a struggle to survive
- While they are still young, they have a hard time both trying to hunt and to defend themselves against other males but by sticking together they increased their survival chances and As they become stronger, their focus will shifts from survival to gaining territory..

Aware..

A male cheetah sits scanning his surroundings as he stands above his hard won meal.
Cheetahs are visual hunters. Unlike other big cats cheetahs are diurnal, meaning they hunt in early morning and late afternoon, the hunt has several components.
It includes prey detection, stalking, the chase, tripping (or prey capture), and killing by means of a suffocation bite to the throat. 

Adult mortality is one of the most significant limiting factors for the growth and survival of the wild cheetah population.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
"If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you.
 The main thing is never quit! never quit! never quit! "

Caracal.

One of the coolest small/medium cats in the world.. These animals surely pack a punch, they are absolute masters of stealth and use explosive jumping power to pluck birds from the air.. They scavenge a fair amount but can also hunt small antelope and rabbits.

Stalking the savanna..

A male lion on patrol, searching.
Listening, taking it all in.. This male and his brother patrolling a fence line where a female in oestrus has caught their attention..

Definitely one of the best times to see male lions about and actually active.

Little bites..

Two cheetah cubs snack on the last remaining bits of a young kudu their mother managed to get.
 Sightings with these little cubs have been great and we hope they can fight the ods and make it to adulthood..
