Cheetah in my lap: Kenyan Safari never stops surprising you!

One dead and many injured in Kenya anti-electoral body riots | Coastweek

David Horsey: "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. The cheetah simply looked at Irish tourist Mickey McCaldin curiously, but then it moved closer as if to curl up on his lap. 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 one point, the large cat was so close to Mickey that it was only about a foot away from his face".The cheeky cheetah and his family casually lounged atop the group's Land Cruiser jeep. David captured the pictures as the group tracked a well-known family of cheetahs, whose mother is called 'Malaika'. KENYA CHEETAH PHOTOS © DAVID HORSEY - CATERS NEWS
