A husband and wife got the fright of their life when they were on a camping holiday in Botswana recently when THREE lions started licking rainwater off their tent, while they were still inside!

Francie Lubbe and her husband were in a national park where the big cats roam regularly were shocked when three of the animals started licking the gauze of their tent, unaware that the two tourists were on the other side of the plastic flap.

Lubbe wrote on Facebook: “What a privilege. “It rained during the night and three lionesses are licking the water from the tent. It was special.”

With encounters like that we think we’ll stick with staying in hotels for our holidays!
