A bunch of lion cubs caused the cutest traffic jam, after they started to play on a road in the Kruger National Park in South Africa. The sun-warmed tarmac kept the pride warm overnight, but even with sun up the had no intention to leave.
Anton and Michelle Campbell-Harris, a couple from Somerset West, Western Cape were celebrating their 26th wedding anniversary and they wouldn’t believed their eyes when came across the rare sight. The adorable sights have been captured on camera by the couple around 6am in the morning. An experience they will never forget.
“We were the only car there at the time and as it was early in the morning they were just waking up,” said Anton. “We watched as the cubs became more playful – it was difficult to know what to focus on as there was so much activity going on. Eventually cars started arriving from the opposite side and the expected traffic jam began.”
The Campbell-Harris couple arrived at the park around 5.30am hoping they will get the chance to see some big wild cats. Yet, they never thought witnessing such a sight, not even in their dreams.
“It is difficult to describe the feeling of being with wild animals so close, you feel so privileged and it does wonders for your soul,” the 47-year-old man said. “We always feel a connection with the cats – we can say that they don’t look at us, but rather look into us.
“We were the only car fortunate enough to have any visual of the little cubby heads above the long grass as they walked away,” Mr. Campbell explained. “The excitement of seeing something in the road as you approach it is not something you can explain.”
