Pack of Seven Lionesses Play on the Road in Front of Artist Akothee in Tsavo East National Park

When we go for a game drive, many are usually happy to have seen a few giraffes, some antelopes, and if we’re lucky, catch a lion or two sleeping in the shade. 

Artist Akothee however, who was recently praised for adopting a child, must either be super blessed or super lucky. As she was enjoying her game drive in Tsavo East National Park, she was eventually held up by a pack of 7 lions, who were not sleeping lazily avoiding the sun, but playfully interacting with each other.

The lions were right on the road in front of Akothee’s vehicle, and like any natural human being, she captured the spectacular site and posted it on social media.

How lucky is she?

Tsavo East National Park is one of the oldest and largest parks in Kenya at 13,747 square kilometres. Situated in a semi-arid area previously known as the Taru Desert.
