I had the opportunity to do a safari in Africa (Kenya) a few years ago and I have to say that it was probably the best experience of my life. To see these animals in their natural habitat it's priceless and it gives you a sense of freedom which is impossible to express.
We also had the chance to have a sort of close encounter with cheetahs. I was literally amazed by those animals: they were extremely fascinating but mysterious at the same time.
Moreover the guide told us it is very difficult to see them because they know how to hide very well, so we were so lucky to be able to see them I guess.
