Helen Clements and her two young children were caught in an impossible situation when their vehicle caught fire in a lion enclosure last Friday. According to ABC News, the family was driving through Longleat Safari Park when rangers urged the family to go back inside the flaming vehicle.
Located in the southern English county of Wiltshire, Longleat offers visitors a taste of faraway Africa. When the park opened its doors in 1966, it was the first drive-through safari park outside of Africa. Separated into different zones such as Flamingo Valley, Big Game Park, and Lion Country, the park holds over 500 animals across 9,000 acres. Longleat fans say it resembles more of a nature reserve than a zoo.
