Look at my pretty eyes! by 

This is a wonderful male cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)that we were fortunate to see on a daily basis while at Londolozi in October last year and on one of those sightings the sun came out to show his magnificent eyes.Cheetahs are not seen often in the Sabi Sands as they need lots of wide open spaces.
