On an early morning game ride in the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania we happened upon a rare sighting of a mother cheetah and her three cubs. The mother could not make the cubs stay in a tree so she could hunt for food. They wanted to go with her. Finally they all stayed together and played. You’ll notice that the animals in the background are not concerned about the presence of the cheetah. The reason for this is that they know she is only hunting for small animals to feed her cubs, not large ones.
