This un­sus­pect­ing sa­fari ranger got the fright of his life af­ter com­ing face-to-face with a lion as he re­laxed in the af­ter­noon sun. Un­armed Eric Ubisi froze as the big cat strolled right past him as he sat in a seat mounted to his sa­fari jeep, parked up in the Manyeleti Game Re­serve in Tintswalo, South Africa at the week­end. He can be seen tensely clutch­ing his chair as he locked eyes with the wild beast, which stopped and glanced up at his ter­ri­fied face just inches away from his legs. Eric was with fel­low rangers David Ja­cobs and An­ton van Log­geren­berg dur­ing the hair-rais­ing mo­ment. Al­though Eric’s en­counter with one of the park’s Mbiri lions looked a lit­tle too close for com­fort - he later claimed he knew he was in no real dan­ger.
