You can be sure to see something awesome anywhere in the area between Crocodile Bridge and Lower Sabie, especially on the S28. We followed the Vultures to a female Cheetah and her 3 sub-adult cubs feeding on an Impala. More Vultures were landing for another hour and we watched and waited to grab shots whenever we could.

Wow what a great sighting, I have never seen Cheetahs with Vultures before, the Cheetahs I've seen have either eaten already and moved off or their meal has been taken by Lions, but I have never seen them eating with the vultures. Very good pics!

Thanks Mary Jane for sharing more superb photos!
by: Mario

So many cheetah photographs are spoilt by thick bush but you got them in the open! You have also given visitors a nice secret they can use - follow the vultures! So many people see them in the sky and landing 'down there' but don't go to investigate what they are up to.
