The manager of the lion park said he doesn't understand why people leave their windows open despite warnings dotted around the compound pictured.
Park employees said that their repeated warnings about the big cats were ignored by tourists trying to get better pictures on safari. The park has more than 85 lions, including rare white lions, and a variety of other animals, including giraffes and ostriches.
According to its website, Lion Park guarantees 'super close-up animal views' but it does order visitors to keep their car windows shut. The park has previously come under fire for allowing visitors to pet lion cubs. It was also accused of breeding lions for 'canned hunting', a charge that the park has refuted. The park offers tented accommodation and also hosts children's birthday parties.
A visitor to the Lion Park last year uploaded a video to YouTube of a lion opening a car door. Employee Mr Simpson said visitors to the park were warned not to leave their windows open to avoid attacks.
We put signage up everywhere that people must keep their windows closed. He added that the park takes safety seriously. We hand out flyers as they are driving in reminding them to keep their windows closed. We really do everything we can to make sure that people know that,' he added.
Australian tourist Brendan Smith, from Perth, was left with deep flesh wounds after a lion pounced through the window and bit his leg at Gauteng Lion Park in March. Brendan Smith, from Perth in Australia pictured with an unidentified friend had only been in South Africa for 36 hours when he was bitten by a lioness after leaving his window open on a safari.
It's been visited by celebrities including R'n'B singer John Legend and pop star Shakira in the past. Lion attacks have been known to happen in the past. In , Ranesh Rajkaran, 28, blocked a lioness from getting into his car with his arm and was bitten but fortunately he only suffered scratches. He and his wife, Somashnie, who was pregnant, had been celebrating their second wedding anniversary at the park and had food inside the car.
Rajkaran said he opened the windows a little due to the sweltering heat but didn't expect a lioness to shove her paw through the gap. In December , former league rugby player Brett Tucker and his family were attacked by a lion at Gauteng Lion Park. Tucker had his daughter on his lap at the time when a lion put its paw through the window but her grandfather acted quickly and threw her in the backseat. Tucker's father suffered minor injuries to the shoulder after he tried to roll his window up, but accidentally rolled it further down.
John Legend and his model wife Chrissy Teigen have also visited the park which is popular with tourists. The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline.
