Masai Mara National Reserve is a large game reserve in Narok County, Kenya. It is globally famous for its wild life which includes animals like Masai lions, African leopards and Tanzanian cheetahs.

One group who was enjoying their safari in Masai Mara, faced a scary encounter with a group out cheetahs.
