A group on safari in Africa got a closer-than-expected look at some cheetahs in the Serengeti.
Britton Hayes was with a group watching three cheetah brothers on the hunt, when one of the cheetahs decided to take a closer look and jumped on the hood of their vehicle, according to television station KOMO in Seattle.
While the first cheetah had their attention, a second jumped into the back seat and began sniffing around, according to Hayes.
“Alex (my guide) kept me calm and made sure I never made eye contact nor startled the cheetah,” Hayes told KOMO, “allowing the animal to see that it could trust us.”
After sniffing around for a bit and licking the seats the animal finally left.
