The Kruger National Park has shared pictures of a rarely-seen pride of lions who found an unusual napping spot as they enjoy the unusually quiet, almost vehicle-free park.

On Wednesday, the dozen lions were found sleeping in the afternoon sun on the warm tar road just outside of the popular Orpen Rest Camp, on the western border of the park.
