Here’s a glimpse into the most exciting traffic jam ever. By Gayatri Moodliar
The Sabi Sands Game Reserve has always been known for its unfenced proximity to the Kruger National Park in the province of Mpumalanga—something that has resulted in unparalleled encounters with the wildlife, especially leopards. But, this closeness took a once-in-a-lifetime turn when a group of cars shared the road with a pride of lions.
It was a procession no one saw coming, and no one could complain about it either, as four members of the Mantimahle royalty gave a whole new meaning to the universal ‘objects in mirror are closer than they appear’ safety warning. Walking in front of and side-by-side vehicular guests, one of the videos documenting this has gone viral—it’s been viewed over two million time (no surprise why). Posted by Lions Of Kruger Park And Sabi Sand on Facebook, the video allows viewers to get as close as possible to a parade you don’t want to miss.
