During the past few days when there was a flurry of lion pride activity, we saw people in a couple of safari jeeps come close to the lions and watched them, took photos, talked loudly enough for us to hear, etc.....all in an open jeep.
I am trying to understand the behaviour of the lions. Why would they be so passive? what would the rangers do if one of the lions decide to attack? In the night, when everyone is focussed on one side the vehicle, wouldn't there be a surprise attack from the other side?
Until I actually visit one of the African parks myself, I will have to rely on the answers by this forum!!
