This impala escapes a cheetah by jumping into a Toyota Land Cruiser!

When you go to a safari the next time, I'd suggest that you make sure you close all those windows of your car. It's not that I'm exaggerating, but I'm pretty sure you won't want to see the situation in the video below, happening to you as well.

At the Kruger National Park in South Africa, some impalas were trying to run for their lives while visitors were passing by. As it turned out, those impalas were being chased by a couple of hungry cheetahs.

Luckily for one particular impala, it seemed to obtain a very good escape route, by jumping into a Toyota Land Cruiser with its windows open at the time. Therefore, keep in mind that it's really not recommended at all to open your car windows at such a place. As for the family, thank God one of the passengers in the car was finally able to open the car door to let the impala go without it or anyone being injured.

The incident was caught on tape courtesy of Samantha Pittendrigh who was riding in the car behind the Land Cruiser. Well, it seems that this time the cheetahs will have to make do without their would-be tasty dinner.
