I’m an avid follower of National Geographic, and although I love their magazine, I am often disappointed with the frequency of animal related news posts on their website. However, their photography does not disappoint, and I think this is one of my favorites.
This photo was taken by tourist Yanai Bonneh during a safari in the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.
There are a few things that stand out to me in this picture, aside from the obvious cheetahs. The woman hoping to snap a picture on her iPhone, the young girl taking a ‘selfie’ with her camera, and it looks like even the guide is leaning in to her a shot.
Sorry, this isn’t a very long or very informative post, I just felt the need to share this amazing photo!

Yes these cheetah in Kenya’s Masai Mara are conditioned to cars. I am working on a post for my blog @AfricaInside.org on strange ways animals have adapted to us humans.
I’m an orangutan person my self, so I think the orang-human interactions that have been recorded are quite amazing. I saw an interview with a nat geo explorer who was studying proboscis monkeys when he got lost in Indonesian Borneo and was led back to his camp by a habituated orangutan. Fascinating stuff! I’ll be working to habituate some wild chimps in Sierra Leon next summer too!
An amazing photograph…You don’t need words to describe its magnificence as it tells its own story. Loved it…
Thank you! It’s simply one of those photos I’ve seen that I’ve not been able to shake. Every time I see it it gives me chills!
