Every week we will feature a reader photo on our home page. This week, thanks go to Andy Howe from Carlton in Bedfordshire for his great picture of six cheetah cubs. Andy says this amazing sight was the reward for a pre-dawn start and two-hour drive to the far reaches of the main reserve from Kicheche Mara Camp. He says he owes big thanks to guides and drivers Jimmy, Francis and David for helping him find the cubs.
