Get a whiff of that! A lion has been caught sniffing a man’s foot as he guides a wild safari.

Bjarne Olsen, 50, from Denmark, was on a five day safari at Kapama Game Reserve in Johannesburg, South Africa, when he caught the lion taking a sniff of his tour guides foot.

His video catches the moment the lion rises and walks towards the safari car, standing just 30cm away.

Despite his excitement, Bjarne was warned beforehand to keep still, so the lion did not see him as a person - but as part of the car.

Bjarne, who works for an insurance company, said: "As we were in a car we could get very close to the wild animals.
