This tour guide had an encounter that he really didn’t expect.
In the Sabi Sands Game Reserve in South Africa, a man was surprised by a pack of lions while he was out tracking the animals.
This scene was taken from the show SafariLIVE, that you can find in the video above. The man in question is Steven Faulconbridge, the main presenter of the show and also an expert in the animal kingdom.
While Steven was out looking for a pack of lions, he noticed a group relaxing just ten meters away from him. As you can see, when he parked his vehicle and advanced into the wilderness, the group of lions and lionesses got up at the same time, surprising Steven by doing so.
Since he is used to interacting with and being around these animals, he managed to keep his cool and even joked about the whole situation:
‘Oh my word. So, everybody, we’ve just bumped into a pride of lions. Those tracks were very fresh and as you can see, they were extremely fresh.’
Surprise, surprise! Check out the video above to see the scary moment for yourself!
