Yesterday we were out looking for lions with the film crew that are staying with us at the moment, and we heard a strange noise. At first we thought it was a bird, but we followed the sound and as we got closer we discovered it was a cheetah, walking around on the plains and making such a loud noise!
We couldn’t tell if it was a male or female and wondered whether it was a mother looking for her cubs. After a while we saw there was another cheetah in the area too – perhaps they were mating. The film crew were recording the cheetah’s sounds – you can listen to them by clicking on the link below.

The cheetahs were very close to some bomas, and were making a very loud noise, so I hope they did not attract too much attention from livestock owners in the area.
