BOTSWANA, Africa — It’s one of the risks you face when camping in a game reserve in Africa.

Two campers sleeping in a tent in the Mabuasehube game reserve in Botswana woke up to find two lions licking water from their tent.

Francie Francisca Lubbe didn’t panic when she saw the lions. Instead she recorded them and posted it to her Facebook page.

“We tried to be very quiet not to disturb them,” Lubbe wrote in the comments. “It was very special.”
