Cheetah on open jeep - eeeek

I know that cheetahs aren't supposed to be a threat to humans but all the same, I think I would have been a bit scared.

What a privilege though, wow, so close up too.

Cheetahs are lovely creatures, LQ, and they don't generally bother to much about humans. What a privilege to have one hitch a lift though! Thank you for that - it made my night.

They like to climb on trucks, it gives them a good vantage point to survey the area. It's not the first time that's happened, it was filmed on a BBC wildlife program, several times I think. What a marvelous thing to happen on your truck though.

What a great photo opportunity if not bloody dangerous. What shocked me was the number of vehicles in the background. Cheetahs are such beautiful animals and efficient too.

Not really, Dongles. Cheetahs don't usually attack people except in self defence. The worst that could have happened to that lot in jeep was she could have sprayed them!
