Out on an afternoon game drive in Ol Pejeta Conservancy, we saw this male cheetah walking in the middle of a plain. A road was crossing the plain a bit ahead of us. I drove as quickly as possible and waited silently in the path of the cheetah. As we were quiet in the car, the cheetah ignored us completely and crossed the road less than 10 metres in front of the car to carry on patrolling his territory. I took about 15 pictures of the encounter.
