A group of tourists were left in an utter state of bewilderment after three lions caused a traffic jam during their safari ride in Africa. Susanta Nanda of the Indian Forest Service shared a 15-second video on Monday wherein the lions were seen blocking the road.
In the video that Nanda shared, two lions relaxed on the road as several jeeps lined up, unable to proceed forward due to the ‘traffic jam’. Another lion, in the meantime, walked up to the spot where the two other animals were lying down and joined them in their siesta on the path.
Tourists stationed in their cars recorded the scenario while waiting patiently for the lions to clear the path.
“Traffic has been disturbing the wild all along. Here, for a change, the wild causing traffic jam. The king is least bothered about the presence of others in his kingdom,” an excerpt from Nanda’s caption reads.
