Lions chasing rhino – Kruger Park Lodge

We found some lions on the Rome section on the 10th of June. They were walking along the road when they came upon a white rhino. This caused great excitement as the lions were soon chasing the rhino around. He was not easily intimidated and gave back as good as he got.
