Francie Lubbe posted this incredible video to Facebook showing an up-close-and-personal encounter with the wildlife in the Khiding Campsite in Botswana.
After it had rained in their camp, three lionesses took advantage of the drops running down the tent and decided to use it as their personal water fountain - with Francis and other still inside.
The South African managed to keep her wits about long enough to film the moment and described it on Facebook as "a privilege":
You wouldn’t want to sneeze.
And we don’t have much faith in the that tent providing much of a barrier if the lionesses decided they were more hungry than thirsty.
But definitely worth the risk.
