If you ever felt brave enough to drive through Kruger
National Park with your windows open and doors unlocked, then this video shows
why you always need to do what it takes to ensure your absolute safety while on
a game drive!
shared footage of a rare encounter captured by Bronwyn Hattingh at Kruger. Hattingh
and her husband were driving in convoy with their friends, when they came
across 6 lions and one young lion “become very interested” in the yellow mirror
covers on her friend’s car behind.
She says the lion “wanted to take the mirror covers off” and
then started to sniff around the car before attempting to open the passenger
door with his lower jaw. “Twice you could hear the handle opening and closing.
It was as if he had done it many times before,” she says about the curious lion.
“It shocked me to realise how clever lions really are!” she
says, adding “It’s wonderful to get so up close and personal with these
beautiful animals but it’s also important that you know when to leave so the
situation does not escalate.”
