Dream setting - cheetah, hunt and rain!

One afternoon we saw a Cheetah mom with her 4 cubs lazing around. Slowly the safari vehicles gathered around and there goes mom - she started to walk and her cubs followed. After following the family for a while, it was clear that they were hungry and on look-out. It started to pour but that did not stop them from moving forward in search of prey. And finally, there goes the hunt! The prey had no escape route given the speed and agility of the Cheetah.
