Cheetah gets too close for comfort on safari

Cheetah gets too close for comfort on safari

By Phyllis Stark. CREATED Mar 14, 2014

Some Australian tourists got more than their money’s worth on a recent safari in the Serengeti, the “Today” show reports.

A young male cheetah in Tanzania got curious about his visitors, climbed  up onto the hood of the Land Rover, then poked his head all the way into the open sun roof.
 
Eventually the cheetah’s mother called him away.
 
The photographer who took the pictures says was in awe, but was never scared during the incident, “Today” reports.
