It is suspected the big cats escaped from the park, said the government of the northern Limpopo province, which has allocated rangers to monitor the pride while officials decide where to send them.
“Employees at Foskor Mine and members of the public are hereby advised to be alert at all times,” the provincial department of environment and tourism said in an online statement.
It said a meeting of government and park officials had concluded that the lions must be captured and released into the Kruger National Park.
But park spokesman Ike Phaahla said this was not feasible, as the new arrivals “will continually break out as other dominant lions will chase them out.”
He added that any animal outside the park “is the responsibility of the provincial authority.”
Until the matter is settled, Phaahla warned “there is a danger to members of the public who are working in the area.
“There is the possibility of wildlife-human conflict, so people have to be careful,” he told SABC public television. “We need to identify a park where they can be taken and establish their own area.”
It was not clear how long the lions have been on the loose.
