The big cats showed they were kings of the road as well as the jungle when they held up traffic in the Kruger National Park
But this was a trickier proposition for travellers in the Kruger National Park in South Africa, who were confronted by a family of rather bigger felines.
We’d suggest a big ball of catnip at the roadside as a possible diversion, or shining a laser pen at a tree.
Without such resources at her disposal, gym Elsa de Kock, 54, decided getting the big cats to move would be a reckless move.
Instead she captured the moment in this beautiful picture.
Kruger National Park, a 7,523 sq m game reserve, is home to an estimated 2,000 lions.
Africa’s total population of wild lions is estimated at 25-30,000, down from 250,000 in 1975, with conservationists trying to reverse the decline in numbers.
