Malaika the Mara cheetah, known for her habits of jumping on vehicles had now left her fully grown cubs. She left them yesterday near Double crossing area, when a suitor came around and left the area with her. They have been mating not to far from the salt lick area since yesterday morning. The male that has courted her seems young and i could not identify him. today, they were still in the same area. I found the cubs yesterday evening but the salt lick. They are still trying to call to mum, but she was a bit far and also occupied with the male.
the cubs are now big enough to fend for themselves. It is very interesting, this is the same place where Honey parted ways with her cubs years ago! I will keep watching and update on any development
