Lions are notoriously lazy. If you’re lucky enough to spot these big cats in the wild, chances are they’ll be lounging under a tree or napping in the midday heat – something that occupies about 20 hours of their day. But when these lethargic felines switch to hunt mode, it’s always a thrilling spectacle. 

While on safari in South Africa’s Thornybush Game Reserve, a group of tourists on a game drive vehicle witnessed this incredible sighting of a small lion pride taking down a kudu bull. Lions are skilled hunters, but with size and formidable horns on their side, kudu are certainly not easy prey. 

And while we’re all for getting closer to nature, we reckon this vehicle got just a little too close. Tell us what you think in the comments below.
