7Lions were chasing a female and children

“They were dashing around after one another – I think there was a female that they were trying to chase. The employees weren’t able to open the gates to let us out because of the disturbance. Then, out of nowhere, a load of them darted towards my car and started jumping all over it. It was a real shock, but I knew that I couldn’t scream because it would upset the children,” said a visitor.

8Lions were running from one place to another

“I think they were just running from one place to the other, and my car happened to be an obstacle in their way, so they hurtled over it. One of them went up on the bonnet, and another one managed to jump on the roof. They really got up close and personal. Eventually the gates opened so that we could get out, and we just carried on our day as normal,” said a visitor.
