Cheetahs in the Serengeti use safari vehicle to scout game

 Cheetahs in the Serengeti


Using the safari vehicle as a vantage point


The Serengeti in Tanzania is well known for it massive herds of wildebeest that migrate through the vast open plains from the north in the Masai Mara through to the south in the Serengeti and back. There are often upwards of a million buck in this migration, with thousands of zebra joining the trek.

Big cats are known to be in abundance all year, as there is always game, even when the migration is not in their area. Cheetahs in the Serengeti can be found on the plains looking for a meal. Because there is very little height advantage these cheetah’s have used the safari vehicles to scout game.

Boris von Schoenenbeck spent a few weeks in the Serengeti filming these beautiful cats. They would go out every day to look for them, and the cheetahs in turn, used their vehicle almost every day. Suddenly Boris was the centre of attention, with upwards of 20 vehicles filming him and the cheetahs!
