Police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said Mfila, a tracking specialist, disembarked from his car and walked in the park when he was suddenly attacked and killed by two lions.
As a game tracker, Mfila’s job entailed driving around the park to check where animals such as elephants or lions were to alert guides who would take tourists on drives to view the wild animals.
The police said he had been driving around checking for animals such as lions and elephants so as to advise guides for game drives.
