A spring break trip in the African nation of Tanzania turned wild when a cheetah jumped into a group’s safari jeep. The guide advised them to freeze in place for 10 minutes until the big cat left.
KOMO reports that Britton Hayes was with a group watching three cheetah brothers on the hunt in the Gol Kopjes of the Serengeti when one of the younger brothers noticed their vehicle and came in for a close look:
“We started to notice the cheetahs became curious of the vehicle,” said Hayes. “But it was too late to drive quickly away or anything like that because you don’t want to startle the animals, because that’s when things usually go wrong.”
Hayes said his group was focusing on a separate cheetah that had jumped on the hood of their SUV, when the other cheetah jumped in the back seat.
“Honestly, it was probably one of the scariest moments of my life while it was happening. I felt like I had to clear my mind of any thoughts because from everything you’re told about predators like that, they can sense fear and any sort of discomfort you’re feeling and they’ll react accordingly,” said Hayes. “I wanted to be as calm and as still as possible to avoid a bad outcome.”
