But mum I wheelie want to play! Adorable lion cubs enjoy a game of hide and seek under tourist’s car

These adorable lion cubs found the perfect spot for a game of hide and seek – behind the wheels of a tourist’s car.

The cute cubs dashed underneath the vehicle as Miranda Keller stopped during a safari at the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa.

Miranda’s son and daughter-in-law, who were in a separate car, pulled up alongside the action to photograph the cheeky cubs playing underneath the vehicle and peeping out from behind the tyres.

The playful youngsters sprinted in and out of their hiding place for around 30 minutes and delighted Miranda was happy to sit and wait while they finished their game.

The 54-year-old said: “When the first cub walked up to the car and went underneath I couldn’t believe it.

“It was so cool to have them run in and out from under the vehicle.

“I was constantly counting them, making sure all four were out from under the vehicle. It was amazing.

“This just confirms again that cubs are very inquisitive, they played around the tyres and under the car for about 30 minutes.

“We will never forget the seven hours we spent with this pride.”
