Developing Story: Lion Escaped from the Kruger Park
This weekend being the Heritage Day long weekend, the many wildlife enthusiasts that were on on their way to Crocodile Bridge or Malelane gates, via the N4, to enjoy a day full of great sightings were "rewarded" with an extra unique lion sighting. But this lion sighting wasn't in the Kruger Park!
After finding out, it seems that this lion escaped either the Kruger National Park, or Lionspruit in Marloth Park.
We will post updates, as we get them:
