People complaining of traffic jams across the globe may be extremely common but it was something incredible and scary as well when four gigantic African lions took charge of the traffic on a street near the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Yes! You read it right. In a video that has gone viral on social networking sites, vehicles were seen stalled midway when four full-grown lions marched down a road in Sabi Sand Private Reserve area of the park. The infrequent incident near the South African park was indeed a visual treat for the tourists and mesmerised thousands others with the latest viral video around the world.
Taking to Facebook, Lions Of Kruger Park And Sabi Sand shared the tantalizing footage of the four male big cats who were seen taking a stroll down the road in all their glory and without a little bit of hassle by humans or their cars. While most of the people on their way to Kruger was all amazed to see the beautiful animals, several others described it as "stunning but scary". The mind-boggling video, which was shared some 15 days ago, has already garnered 2.3 million views with the comment thread being flooded with over 1,900 remarks.
Watch video here:
All of the four majestic beasts belong to the Kruger National Park and Sabi Sand Private Reserve in South Africa. Kruger is one of Africa’s largest game reserves and a home to as many as 1600 lions including leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos. Hundreds of other mammals make their home in the South African park as do diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles and storks. Mountains, bush plains and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.
