Watch this lion get the fright of its life when the car tyre it is chewing on explodes.

Sean Obeirne, 13 years old, and his family went on a trip to the Kruger National Park. While they were on their way for breakfast they suddenly had to stop because of a pride of lions crossing over the road. They eagerly admired the pride of lions who came right up to the car. Initially, the family thought one of the lions was just investigating the car but they soon realised the lion was actually chewing the tire! Suddenly a loud bang is heard as the tyre pops and the lions were practically tripping over themselves trying to run away.

There is a reason that Kruger National Park is one of the most popular attractions in South Africa. In addition to this impressive story, the wildlife sightings in Kruger National Park are the best you will find in South Africa.
