Lions of Kruger Park - Traffic Jam! 😮— Amit Paranjape (@aparanjape) January 11, 2019
In South Africa, the biggest problem is when the lions block the roads at the traffic lights, or when they enter the bus or the trains. But you get used to it.— Politricks SA (@PolitricksSA) January 11, 2019
If one of them chases you, just shout "voetsek" 3 times. It's a command to make them go away.
It's not the Lions that's crossing the road, it's the road that's crossing the jungle... https://t.co/7Uur99xIai— Harry Triple O (@HarryO1975) January 12, 2019
