Cheetah Falls into Safari Jeep After Crawling on the Roof

Do cheetahs get embarrassed? This one probably should be…

Ahh, the elusive cheetah. Such stealthy, agile creatures…

Right?

We generally picture them either sprinting after prey at astonishing speeds, or lazily walking across a tree limb to take a rest. Well, apparently, not all of them boast that famous agility equally.

In a rather hilarious turn of events during a safari in the Maasai Mara, Kenya, a Jeep full of people got a little more cheetah than they bargained for. The big cat loses its footing (more than once), and nearly ends up in the lap of the Jeep’s passengers.

I have always been fascinated by the animal interactions that can occur on African safaris, and this video simultaneously terrifies me and makes me want to book a trip now. What about you?
