Cheetah cub in a tree

This adventurous cub decided to get a better view after lunch, while his two siblings and mum were taking a nap at the base of the tree. Stunning to watch this cub explore, climb and gain confidence every step he took ... definitely scarier coming down. Naboisho Conservancy, Masai Mara
