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

One group of tourists on safari in South Africa learned this lesson the hardest way ever. 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 do best and they began to gingerly snap pics and record a video of the rare encounter. That is when one interested lion decided to check them out. The curious cat got up and slowly walked to the back car door to take a peek inside the vehicle, only the window and door separated these 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 smart lion’s attempt to get in the car was stopped and what a scary and crazy tale these park visitors caught on their video 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 and special skill for opening doors. That’s why it is a rule that all tourists must stay in their cars with the doors locked the entire time. It’s smart, easy, and very effective but apparently some people just don’t listen and put their lives in grave danger!
