[FunOnTheNet] TENSION EN UN SAFARI POR EL ESTE DE AFRICA / EXCITEMENT ON EAST AFRICAN SAFARI

 






 
 
 
  





 
A curious Cheetah got up close and personal with a holidaymaker on safari at the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya when the animal jumped into the back seat of a jeep
The wild cat, with its razor sharp claws and teeth, sure is one kitty you'd rather not have curling up on your lap.
But, nevertheless, the bold animal hopped into the back seat of a jeep as it drove through the African plains - much to the shock of an Irishman inside.
After entering the vehicle, it slowly sauntered over to holidaymaker Mickey McCaldin until it was barely a foot away from his face.
Family friend David Horsey captured the tense standoff between the pair as it looked like the cheetah was going to make himself comfortable on Mickey's lap.
David, 62 from Mombasa, Kenya, said: 'I've been living in Kenya all my life and I've never seen anything like this.
'The cheetah just wasn't scared of getting up close and personal. At first Mickey was really relaxed but I think he was quite concerned it might try and sit in his lap.
'Unlike a domestic cat, you certainly don't want that.'
 
At first, the cheetah simply looked at Irish tourist Mickey McCaldin curiously, 
but then it moved closer as if to curl up on his lap
At one point, the large cat was so close to Mickey that it was only 
about a foot away from his face
Family friend David Horsey captured the tense standoff between the pair, including 
the moment that the animalleapt into the safari jeep
Making himself comfortable: The cheeky cheetah and his family casually lounged atop the group's Land Cruiser jeep
 
David captured the pictures on June 12, as the group tracked a well-known 
family of cheetahs, whose mother is called Malaika.
Having followed them for a couple of days previously, they observed that the family 
hadn't had a kill for several days.
David said: 'The family had been looking for a gazelle for a few days with no luck.
'As we'd been around for a couple of days, I think they were used to the jeep so the mum jumped on top to get a better view.
'I think the other cheetah tried to follow her up but went a different way.
'Once it had got bored of Mickey it turned away and looked out of the vehicle for 
a few minutes. 'It just jumped out afterwards.'
Photographer David, 62 from Mombasa, Kenya, said: 'I've been living in Kenya 
all my life and I've never seen anything like this'
The incredible pictures were taken on June 12, as the group tracked a well-known family of cheetahs, whose mother is called Malaika
The group was a bit nervous after learning that the cheetah family hadn't had a kill for several days and were likely hungry
 
David explained: 'I think they were used to the jeep so the mum 
jumped on top to get a better view'
Surprise of their lives! The safari group was comprised of a guide, as well as Mickey, his wife, sister, photographer David and David's wife
Mickey was out on holiday with his wife and sister, who are friends of David and his wife Vicky.
David said: 'Me and Vicky have lived in Kenya all our lives but we never feel the urge to leave.
'People always ask us where we're going on holiday and it's always around the game reserves.
'You never know what you're going to come across - just like this.'
