This is the moment terrified tourists watched a lion eating the tires of their vehicle while they were on a safari drive in Tanzania.
Pictures taken in the Serengeti National Park show hungry lions gnawing at the wheels of the truck during an hour-long attack.
Holidaymakers can be seen cowering inside as the animals ‘wreaked havoc’ destroying the tires and attempting to crack the enforced-glass windows.
The dramatic images were captured by safari tour guide Emmanuel Bayo, from Arusha, Tanzania earlier this month.
He said: ‘It was quite scary really – the lions are very hungry in the park and hadn’t had a kill for a while.
‘The truck was driving past with people inside and the lions smelt the humans.
‘Then they were trying to get inside for about an hour and wreaked havoc.
‘They destroyed the wheels and tried to smash the windows – even though we have enforced glass which stops this. It would have been a disaster if we hadn’t.
‘It was scary but exhilarating – I think everyone should come on safari with me to have these experiences.’
