They Were Camping When They Heard Something Odd, And You’ll Never Guess What It Was

The big cats were thirsty, so they licked dew from the side of this tent. The only downside is that people were sleeping in it!

While Francisca Lubbe was camping in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park wildlife preserve in South Africa’s Kalahari Desert, something woke her up from a dead sleep early in the morning.

It wasn’t the call of an exotic bird or the sound of trees rustling in the wind. Not at all. Take a look at the video below and watch what these explorers were confronted with when they woke up that day.

I seriously don’t even know how they filmed this with steady hands.


Maybe these two should consider staying at a hotel next time. Or not! I mean, this is terrifying, but it’s also kind of incredible. What would you do if you woke up staring into the face of such a powerful animal?
