Safari Tourists Get A Surprise Encounter With a Lion

Most people who go on safaris are probably excited for their chance to get up close and personal with animals, but these tourists got a little bit too close for comfort! 

A new video released by a Safari Park in Crimea shows the insane moment a lion hops into an open-air safari vehicle with tourists. The park is known for offering its guests very close interactions with these giant cats.

In the video, the lion (named Filya) climbs INTO the open-air safari vehicle and begins nudging and licking the driver and tourists, even appearing to cuddle the safari members like a normal house cat. Some of the tourists can be seen laughing and taking selfies with the lion, but one woman looks a little scared and jumps out of the car. 

Take a look at the crazy footage below!
