In interview with CNN, park spokesperson Isaac Phaahla said the logging of lions on the road is not common. “Being on the road during the day is unusual. Under normal circumstances there would be traffic and that drives them into the bush,” he explained.

South Africa's social isolation measures were extended by the country's president, Cyril Ramaphosa, until the end of April.
