Uganda's rare tree-climbing lions

If you were to find yourself being chased by a lion you might try and climb a tree to escape - but this would not be much help in the Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.

Lions have been spotted sleeping in trees as they digest their lunch and escape the hottest part of the day.

Vishva Samani went on safari to try and spot this rare behaviour.
