Lockdown: Lions sleep on tar roads as people self-isolate in their houses

A national park in South Africa, Kruger National Park, has shared a picture of a pride of lions taking over tracks that are normally used by tourists.

According to the tweet made by the park on Wednesday, April 15, the lions are usually in Kempiana Contractual Park, an area that is not visible to tourists who come to the area.

Kruger National Park tweets:

“Kruger visitors that tourists do not normally see.  #SALockdown This lion pride are usually resident on Kempiana Contractual Park, an area Kruger tourists do not see.  This afternoon they were lying on the tar road just outside of Orpen Rest Camp.  Camera with flash Section Ranger Richard Sowry”

BBC reports that like other places in the country, the park has been shut to the public as directed by the South African government to curtail the spread of coronavirus.

Source reported that a new viral video that emerged online supported the fact that animals are really basking in the euphoria that this lockdown season gives.

The video showed a monkey on the roof of a tall building flying a kite as it enjoyed its undisturbed freedom, never minding the fact that a few people were screaming in amazement.

The shouting seemed to encourage the monkey more as he intensified twirling of the kite’s rope.
