Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) Family Relaxing, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

A cheetah mother and her growing cubs rest out of the sun in the heat of the African Savannah. Smarter than the humans surrounding them, these cats know to nap during the day when the temperatures rise and hunt in the cooler times of the day.

Shot in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
