Viral video shows 4 lions strolling along a road in South Africa causes ‘traffic jam’


A viral video seen by 2 million viewers worldwide showed a stretch of cars lining behind four full-grown male lions along a road in Kruger National Park, South Africa.

The vehicles passing through the road slowed down when it was forced to follow behind the group of lions on the road. The drivers did not seem annoyed or angry, and were very excited to see the lions.

The majestic animals look great taking casual strolls and ignoring the vehicles that follow them close behind.

According to Stuff NZ, lion coalitions are normally made up of brothers, and often half-brothers, and cousins. Successful coalitions find female lions, and gain access to them by chasing away resident males.

The video was shared by a Facebook page named ‘Lions Of Kruger Park And Sabi Sand’. Both Kruger National Park and Sabi Sand are two of South Africa’s most popular safari destinations. Due to their close proximity to one another, they share an unfenced border whereby the animals are free to roam within.
