At sunrise we started another game drive in the Serengeti.  While one of the girls in the jeep had most of us engrossed with a story about her parrot, someone managed to spot a cheetah with 3 babies walking through the long grass.  Before long, we are joined by several other jeeps and watched the mother teach the babies how to catch food.  She caught a rabbit, stunned it and let it go so one of the babies could finish the kill.  Very interesting to watch.

To add to the highlights, we were fortunate to see another leopard - this one was sleeping in a tree, and on closer inspection, near it was slung a dead gazelle it was saving for later.

We continued the game drive until lunch time, then started the journey to the Ngorongoro Conversation Area, where we camped on the rim of the crater.
