Lion roars and 'winks' at cameraman in Kruger National Park

An awesome video has emerged of a lion roaring and winking at tourists during a night drive in Kruger National Park in South Africa.

The footage, shot on April 9, shows the lion lying on the road by a safari car, 'howling' at the moon before closing one eye while looking at the camera.

"We spotted this lion on a night drive with Jock Safari Lodge. We got the lion walking on the road not far from the concession entrance and followed him a few minutes," the filmer wrote.

"We could hear in front of us other lions calling. Then this boy decided to lie down a bit and call."

"The car was shaking from the roar. Amazing sighting," he added.
