Watch: Safari guide walks straight into pride of lions near Kruger

Posted by Gabrielle Jacobs on 22 August 2019

Wildlife guide and trainer Steve Faulconbridge was following the fresh spoor of lion cubs he had spotted while taking a tour group for a game drive in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve along the western border of Kruger National Park.

Steve got out of the vehicle and was so engrossed with following the lion tracks, diligently explaining his movements to the safari group, that he didn’t realise he was walking right into the Nkuhuma pride of lions that was hidden in the long, golden grass.

‘Oh my word,’ Steve repeatedly proclaimed, as he realised where he was heading just in time as the lions got up and started to move off. ‘We’ve just bumped into a pride of lion.’

‘Today’s tracks were very, very fresh,’ he later joked.
