Mother Lion within feet of safari vehicle

We pulled our safari vehicle up to a group of female lions stalking a few stray water buffalo. They were about 50 yards away. Tiring of the "game" the lions came directly by our vehicle and one climbed the rise next to us. I was no more than 15 feet from the lion.
