Viewers enjoy seeing wild animals run in with people, and many were nervous as they watched the video. Netizens were impressed by how the family stayed silent in the giant lion's presence as it looked calm.

Speaking to Briefly News, Robert Heel, a Bothongo Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve wildlife expert, explained that the last thing you want to do is run. He said:

"The number one rule is never run. If you run, you are food."

According to Robert, if you are outside, move away slowly while still looking at the lion, but do not look it in the eye. He advised that you should try to return to the tent but otherwise stand your ground and do not run.
