RC car with camera meets a group of lions!

“Car L” meets the lions. The remote controlled 4×4 camera buggy gets up close and personal as it is stalked by this curious pride of lions in Botswana.

The “Car L” project was hatched by Chris McLennan and engineered by Carl Hansen to capture unique images of lions with a Nikon D800E, fired remotely by Chris McLennan using a trigger system built into the remote control unit.

Made possible by HP and Nikon New Zealand.

This was filmed in the wild in Botswana.
No lions were harmed in the making of this film.
“Car-L” survived his injuries and is ready for his next adventure!
