They wanted to get close to the lions, but they got a lot more than they bargained for. LOL!

Our story begins with a quote from our story teller who experienced this first-hand, “Did you know lions could open car doors? My sisters were visiting our parents, while serving a mission in South Africa, and had an experience of a lifetime.”

Lions are beautiful and amazing creatures. It’s easy to see why people will travel halfway across the world for a chance to see them if the wild. The people in this video were hoping to capture a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse of lions in their natural habitat. They got a little bit more than they bargained for. Oh boy, did they!

Joshua Sutherland and his sisters were travelling through the African wilderness. This opportunity to get up close and personal with the lions must have been absolutely amazing. Can you imagine what it must have felt like?

But when the lion walks up to the car and opens the door I was scared for my own life, I can only imagine what these girls felt being right there in the car. Clearly the lions have picked up a trick or two by observing the various safaris that have gone past.

What did you think of this video? Let us know what you think in the comments. We’d love to hear from you! Personally, I think the moral of the story is simple: Never underestimate another’s intelligence.
