Lady GaGa has been hanging out some rather unusual company whilst on tour in Africa, with the pop megastar posting a photo of herself with no less than 13 lions whilst on a Safari in South Africa.

Gaga, wearing a rather glamourous safari outfit topped with leopard print silk scarf and large green earrings, got up and close with the kings of the jungle and looked in her element getting to become one with nature, posting a number of snaps on to her Twitter page.

The singer really did get close-up to the big cats, adding one picture with the caption: "I'm about 10 feet from 13 lions, 2 cubs. I spent about 30 minutes with them and took a nap!" The lifestyles of the rich and famous!

The eccentric singer reached Johannesburg earlier this week as she continues her all-encompassing world tour, taking it to the horn of Africa after hitting Asia and Europe since the summer. She took to the stage at the city's FNB Stadium last night (Nov 30), complete with a South African flag, taking to Twitter afterwards to say: "Johannesburg was so wonderful, i can't really put it into words. Im so happy, I haven't slept yet. Laying in bed dreaming of the next tour." Next stop, Cape Town and then its back to Europe.
