MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE, Kenya – A group of tourists got up close and personal with a cheetah who decided that their jeep looked like a good way to travel.

The says that when the cheetah first fell into the jeep, the tourists were fearful, but it seems that this cat just wanted to check things out.  The family of cheetahs had been seen for a few days, apparently looking for food.  The theory is that they were so used to the safari jeeps that one of them jumped up on top to get a better view of the surrounding area.

After a bit, he got bored with it all and left.
