“I had heard about the sighting and made my way there. On route, I had a flat tire and of course, had to change it first.” Upon arrival at the sighting, this male lion was busy stalking the other lion, who was taking a leisurely nap.

As the male lion got closer and closer, the other one had realized what had been happening – but only a second too late and got the fright of his life. The two lions got into a minor brawl, only to go straight back to sleeping again soon after.

“This truly was a once-in-lifetime sighting for me and just really goes to show everything happens for a reason. Had it not been for the flat tire, we would probably not have experienced this.”
