These tourists on a game drive in a South African reserve got up close and personal with a curious lioness.

Joshua Sutherland's family were thoroughly enjoying watching a lazy pride of lions from the safety of their car. One lioness, however, was very interested in the strange vehicle, and wandered up to the car for a closer look.

The family seem delighted when she pushes her nose up to the window, laughing and taking pictures. Their laughter didn't last long however -- the clever feline realised she could get to the creatures inside by pulling on the handle, which she did with her razor-sharp teeth.

The family can be heard shrieking in absolute terror, until one of them yanks the door closed again.

"Did you know lions could open car doors?," Joshua captioned the video clip he later loaded to YouTube. "My sister Kaylene and Cindy visiting our parents, who are serving a mission in South Africa, had an experience of a lifetime.
