It’s a wild world: Lions on a golf course and an elephant at a mine

Only in South Africa will you hear about a pride of lions exploring a popular golf course, and an elephant making its appearance at a mine.

Wild animals have been making headlines recently, with two unusual sightings reported.

In the first case, Lowvelder reported about a pride of about 11 lions visited the Skukuza golf course, situated in the world-renowned Kruger National Park.

According to Jean Rossouw, the course’s greenkeeper, the lions are regular visitors and have been coming to enjoy the course all throughout the week.

Among the pride were some cubs as well, playfully running around on the course. Some hyenas also joined the feline visitors.

In the meantime, Letaba Herald reported about a separate incident of an elephant passing through Foskor Mine in Phalaborwa recently.

Inus Verhoef who took a video of the elephant, said no one was hurt, and vehicles parked outside were also untouched. According to Verhoef, elephants and other wildlife pass through the mine regularly but will not harm anyone.
