Impala Escapes Cheetah By Jumping Into Tourist's Car in South Africa

by at . Comments

Check out this amazing video of cheetahs chasing a group of impala antelopes ... one of whom escaped via the car of some folks on a safari in South Africa.

The frightened impala had been separated from its herd and was trying desperately to elude two cheetahs in Kruger National Park in South Africa.

To the surprise and shock of tourists parked on the road, the panicked impala escaped by jumping into a car through a window of a Toyota Prado.

Call it a window of opportunity?

Tourist Samantha Pittendrigh, 20, who shot the video, said, “We started freaking out, going crazy. We couldn’t believe it. We were absolutely dumbstruck."

“We watched the cheetah chasing the impala. We saw a few of them turn around in the bushes towards the road they were running from."

"All of a sudden we saw the impala jump out of the bushes and then someone started screaming, ‘It is in the car! It is in the car!’"

“We heard a little girl screaming in the car. The boy sitting outside the car filming looked a lot younger, so it must have been a family."

"People in other cars screamed, ‘Open the door! Open the door!’”

Soon, the door opened and the impala trotted away, having successfully cheetahed (sorry) death. The big cats, presumably dumbfounded, did not give chase.
