Never in my life did I think I'd see this!  I was amazed to watch, from the safety of a land rover, a mother cheetah with her two cubs.  In the twinkling of an eye, her head rose, and she took off faster than my eyes could follow  (cheetahs can run at 72 mph) and brought down a gazelle.  I then had the dubious treat of watchng mom and cubs at lunch.
