Now that’s what you call a tailback! This is the moment a pride of lions brought traffic to a standstill at Kruger National Park in South Africa.

The pride of 18 hungry lions had recently killed a buffalo and decided to lay in the middle of the road to devour it.

But rather than be annoyed at the hold up, most of these drivers had come to the park in the hope of spotting one of Africa’s big five, so were overjoyed at the impromptu encounter.

One of the tourists lucky enough to capture the moment on camera was Suan Wright, 60 and his wife Rosemary.

Shaun from Bedfordview, South Africa, said: “I was on my annual trip to the Kruger Park when a pride of about 18 lions had killed a buffalo and were feeding on the carcass.

“The buffalo was killed no more than hour before we arrived on the scene.

“The fact that more and more vehicles appeared and could not pass because the pride were feeding in the middle of the main road did not perturb them in the least.

“We sat watching the spectacle for over an hour before moving on.

“It was an extremely rare sighting which makes one realise what a truly special place the Kruger National Park is.”
