Animals on the road

While some cheetahs are shy and avoid cars, others remain on the edge of the road, exposing themselves to danger. Recently we found Nora resting at the roadside, where she spent a few hours. She did not pay attention to passing and stopping tourist cars, and only a large truck forced her to leave the spot. Rains bring the problem of spotting an animal at a short distance while driving. The young Thomson’s gazelle was left alone when the mother moved to the other side of the road, frightened by cars passing by. Fortunately, the mother came for it’s fawn. We all have to be very attentive while driving in the Mara, especially on the slippery roads and in the rain.
