Mr Goenka, who is the chairman of Indian RPG Group conglomerate, shared a video of the brave walk on Twitter with the caption, “That’s my daughter. Can you imagine her mother”, and a bunch of emojis to show his amusement at the feat.

Such wildlife tours are popular in South African national parks where people experience “walking with lions” with the aim to interact with the big cats, that are trained and raised in captivity in forest areas.
The tours are widely debated with some saying that they indicate animal abuse, while others believe that the tourism helps in the lions’ conservation.
