Cape Town - The latest footage released by Latest Sightings.com shows baby impala’s heart just about beating out of its chest whilst trying to hide in front of a tourist's car away from a hungry cheetah and her cub. 

“We visit the Kruger only once a year and have had very few cheetah sightings in the past, especially ones including a hunt so this was an incredibly rare moment for us,” Albert Le Roux explains to LatestSightings.com

Albert continues, “we were driving on the S28, near Lower Sabie, when we saw a couple of vehicles stationary along the roadside, and stopped to join them. By the time we arrived, the baby impala was already separated from its mom. The impala was hiding in a small bush close to the road whilst the mother cheetah was observing how her cub could hunt.
