Road Wisdom: Lion Encounters

~ Tip from a park ranger in Zambia: When facing a lion while walking or crawling out of your tent, stand still and breathe normally, don’t pee your pants when the lion comes towards you, sniffs you or even puts his paws on your shoulder. If the lion is just relaxing, slowly back away. As long as you don’t run away, you should be fine! .. if there are cubs involved though, hope for the best! ~
