These Campers Were Woken Up By Lions Licking Rainwater Off Their Tent

"Good morning – this is your wake-up call."

For many people, there’s nothing finer than waking up to the great outdoors. If you’re not one of those people, that’s probably because of videos like these.

Amazingly, the footage shows three parched lions licking water off a tent from rain the night before. The lions appear to be completely indifferent to the tent's occupants, or their bottle of Scotch.

The video was shot by Francie Francisca Lubbe earlier this month while camping at the Khiding campsite with her partner in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Botswana. While many would understandably be pretty shaken up by having a lion lick as an alarm clock, Lubbe described the occurrence as “a privilege.”
