While some may assume this is a common thing to see in South Africa, what the drivers were seeing is actually spectacular. These big guys belong to a tight-knit lion pride famous in Kruger known as the Mantimahle males.
Likely all brothers, half-brothers and cousins, these lions have a coalition formed to fight off other males competing for the love of lionesses within their territory. In the video, they’re patrolling their land together to make sure no unwelcome visitors come walking through.
With the ability to bring this entire road full of vehicles to a halt, this group is surely a force to be reckoned with — and the people who witnessed it will remember it for years to come.
