“Oh, my word!” is probably the tamest thing we would have said if we had found ourselves suddenly faced with a pride of lions

But wildlife guide Steve Faulconbridge managed to keep his cool and back away slowly as he was showing guests around the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve near the Kruger National Park.

In the video, Faulconbridge can be seen leaving the game vehicle, and following some “fresh” lion tracks… he didn’t know just HOW fresh they were until several of the resting females stood up from the grass in which they had been expertly camouflaged.

What would you have done in this situation?!
