Actor John Cusack was stunned by his African safari this Summer (03) - because he couldn't believe roaming lions refused to eat him.

The HIGH FIDELITY star took a jeep safari in KRUGER NATIONAL PARK and will never forget the time he spent mingling with the wildlife - even though he was terrified.

He says, "It's kind of extraordinary because you're in a jeep and its open. You drive right up to a bunch of lions, and if you're in the jeep, somehow, they look at you as this four headed creature with legs of wheels and they don't eat you.

"But if you get out of the jeep, you're lunch. I can't figure out the line between jeep and lunch. I saw lions, cheetahs and elephants."
