Andrei, from Moscow, Russia said: “We were driving through the national park in the open jeep and suddenly this giant tiger appeared right on the road in front of us.

“He was only about seven meters from us!

“It’s not considered dangerous for tigers to get this close as they say the tigers have no interest when you are in jeep.

“But they don’t recommend to get out of it.

“It looked like the tiger was sticking his tongue out especially for us.

“The guide said it was the biggest tiger he had ever seen and that it was a great luck to meet him.”
