This Family Went to See The Lions But Instead Got the Scariest Surprise of Their Lives.

Going on an African safari would be a dream come true for many people. The sight of beautiful wild animals roaming free in their natural habitat is a bound to be full of adventure and once in a lifetime experiences. It can also be extremely dangerous and whenever anyone ventures out freely into a safari park they need to follow all of the rules, stay alert, not tempt fate, and lock the car doors!

One group of tourists on safari in South Africa learned this lesson the hard way. They were going through a drive-thru nature park, taking in all the sights and sounds the reserve had to offer, when they come across a pride of lions. The magnificent big cats were casually lounging in the shade and resting in order to escape the mid-day heat when the family pulled up next to them.

The tourists started doing what tourists love best and they began to happily snap away and record video of the encounter. That’s when one lion decided to check them out. The curious cat got up and walked over to the rear car door to take a peek inside, only the glass window and metal door separated the two. The family was naturally ecstatic and more than excited to capture the rare moment on film and video, and a little nervous as well. They were also completely oblivious as to what was about to happen next.

They pulled forward a little and the lion followed. She approached the rear car door, bit down on the handle and pulled back, causing it to instantly swing wide open!! The occupants screamed in surprise and scrambled to quickly slam the door shut. Only after making sure it twas locked did they begin to breathe again. Thankfully, the clever lion’s attempt to get in the car was thwarted and what a crazy and scary story these park visitors caught on camera!

Who knew lions were so adept at opening things? Apparently the operators and park rangers know all too well that animals, lions especially, seem to have a knack for opening doors. That’s why it’s a rule that visitors must stay in their vehicles with the doors locked at all times. It’s smart, simple, and effective but apparently these people failed to abide by it.
