PICTURES | Lions roam freely on fairways of Skukuza GC during lockdown

As South Africans spend Friday - or Day 8 of the 21-day coronavirus lockdown - indoors, flora and fauna around the country are enjoying a break from gawking onlookers.

None more so the case than at Skukuza Golf Club inside the Kruger National Park.

The unique 9-hole course is closed to golfers at present, allowing animals to roam the fairways freely.

And that's exactly the case as these snaps below show.

A lion guards the 5th tee while a pack of wild dogs keep the 'next tee' well protected. A hyena casually strolls past, checking out the king of the jungle ... and now, Skukuza Golf Club.
