It is indeed the Maasai Mara, apologies if I said Samburu (never actually been there) I was particularly pleased with the sharpness of picture 3, and the lighting meant post processing could reveal some of the detail in the eyes. 5 was a shot I didn't actually notice until I uploaded it but it was sharp and had something different, which over 3 days I didn't really come across much that stood out as unique, I guess this is the experience side again you learn to spot stuff that makes a good shot.
I'm afraid some of the sharpness issues might have been me trying to reduce the noise
or possibly due to relativity low resolution shots. However more likely due to the issues I noted earlier. For some reason my focusing was inconsistent and I cant really think of a reason for it. As for positioning on the cheetah shot we were jostling for position with about 5 or 6 other vehicles I was trying to get a clear shot but it wasn't easy.
sounds like the same situation i had...and the same bush
