A curious cheetah shocked safari visitors when it jumped onto their car and poked its head through an open window. The young male jumped onto the bonnet to look for prey but with nothing in sight turned its attention to the front seat passenger Lee Whittam, 39.
He said: ‘In 21 years of guiding, this is the first time it’s happened to me. But once we’d recovered from the initial shock we enjoyed the extremely close views and inquisitive looks from this young male as he sniffed, licked and chewed bits of the vehicle that intrigued him.’
The unusual sight was captured in the northern Serengeti, Tanzania.
