I have published several articles here about lions and folks on safari and what happens when you roll down your window, or get out of the car to get a better shot with a camera. Some people have been mauled and others have been killed. People just don’t seem to understand that these animals are apex predators and if given the chance…they will kill you and make a meal out of you.
When you are on a wildlife safari, always remember to keep your windows rolled-up, people have been dragged out of their cars by lions and all because they didn’t appreciate the fact that these are ferocious wild animals. So it’s always a good thing to keep the windows in your car rolled up, if you get too hot…turn up the air conditioning.
Well, now it seems that it’s not enough to simply keep your windows rolled up, at least in this instance, the family in the video learned that they also have to keep their car doors locked. While watching the video we see that everything seems to be going smooth, when all of a sudden, a lioness comes up and opens the car door.
Thank goodness that they managed to close the door before the lion could grab anyone. This little adventure could have taken a terrible turn, instead, they all learned a valuable lesson…always…always…keep your car doors locked when surrounded by lions !
The only thing these folks will have to do when their safari is over, is get back to the hotel and change their underwear. Along with the video, they’ll also have one hell of a story to tell everyone when they get home.
Here’s what these folks said about their little safari adventure: “Did you know lions could open car doors? My sisters were visiting our parents, while serving a mission in South Africa, and had an experience of a lifetime.”
