William Mabasa, communications manager for Kruger Park, said officials had received reports from several witnesses.

“There was a pride of lions in the road and she probably wanted to pass them, so she preferred to push them out of the way.

“We would like any witnesses to please come forward or if anyone has taken photographs of the vehicle and its number plate,” he said.

“If we think a fine is not enough, we can make a recommendation to impose a ban on the owner of the vehicle.”

The incident took place near Crocodile Bridge.
