Curious cheetah

Amazing photo's of a young male Cheetah who jumped on to a safari vehicle. Love the picture of his paw on the drivers hand. The guide said he wasn't worried and you can see from the picture he was just touching the hand, no sign of aggression. Incredible  Cheetah

  Such a wonderful experience. These cheetah are so smart using vehicles and it's great to see. Let's hope people don't get too carried away with trying to touch them. I would dearly love to get so close with my camera in my hand!

Thanks Littlewid - a great article and pics.

Read this in the Mail LW. Fantastic to be so close to a Cheetah, it must have been the thrill of a lifetime, but as Lai says you must always be aware that at the end of the day they are a wild animal

Hee hee what wonderful photos they are. If there was one big cat you'd want to jump on your jeep it's definitely a cheetah - the other two are a definite  No No !!! When Malaika did it to our jeep a couple of years ago she was that close you could see a fly on her nose !! It really is an exhilirating experience. I like the way the youngster pawed at the guys hand, he appeared very gentle and it was his own doing.
