It was our first morning at Halali camp in Namibia’s Etosha National Park, so we were up and ready for action as soon as the gate opened. Bingo! While the morning light was still soft, we found four cheetah in a flat-topped acacia tree at Salvadora waterhole on the edge of the pan.
Finally, after a lot of up and down and general early-morning rough and tumble, they all left the tree at a signal from mum and slowly melted into the yellow grass until only their heads were visible, then their ears, then nothing.
