Imagine waking up and going to the kitchen to make your morning cuppa, only to find a lion growling at you through the window. A 46-year-old man in a game reserve in South Africa found himself in this exact scenario and decided to film the events separately with his camera. A viral video shot on June 25, 2021 shows Dylan Panos in an open kitchen at a camp. He tries to make his coffee, but a lion keeps roaring at him when he sees him through the window.
There is also a lioness right next to the kitchen wall. Dylan, who runs nature guide training company Bhejane Nature Training, makes it clear that the lion is here to mate, but the lioness doesn’t want to be bothered. The video was released on YouTube through a channel called ViralHog.
Soon Dylan successfully puts the kettle on the fire. The lioness is now on the porch of the hut and the lion is still chasing her. Dylan shows us that the kitchen and dining room have no doors and only wire mesh on the windows. The lion continues to growl at Dylan when he sees him through the window. However, the caption in the video makes it clear that Dylan is in no danger until he interrupts the lion’s chase.
Dylan plays around by scolding the lion for his “very rude behavior”. He also laughs at the big cat’s determination and says, “Very funny lion you are”.
Meanwhile, some Bhejane students sit in a parked vehicle at a distance and wait for the wild beasts to pass.
According to the caption of the YouTube video, lions generally keep their distance from the human camp in the reserve. Perhaps that’s why the lioness took refuge in the building. But on that particular day, Dylan and the students saw eight lions walking through the camp. This particular lion seemed too determined to leave. The lion troop eventually left after 40 minutes.

That would have been an unforgettable cup of coffee for Dylan and his students!
