Kevin Love's honeymoon in Africa just took a WILD turn -- the NBA star watched lions hunt down a wildebeest ... and then saw them completely devour it from limb to limb!
Love, who's with his model wife, Kate Bock, in Tanzania celebrating their recent nuptials, shared video of the scene on Friday morning ... and, warning, it's pretty graphic.
In the footage, you can see a group of lions snacking on their prey -- all while Love recorded just feet away in a vehicle.
"We were told it’s very rare (and lucky) to see a kill play out in front of your eyes from start to finish," Love said, before adding, "It’s an ugly and yet beautiful game out there."
Love and Bock have been in Africa for a few days now, and the two seem to be thrilled with their experience so far.
The couple has been spotted watching elephants, giraffes and other exotic animals, all while enjoying some food and drink.
"This place is everything we dreamed of & more," Bock said. "The views, the animals, the light, the warm people, the adventure, the wildness…. Tanzania, you’re something special."
Have fun on the trip, guys ... but try not to get TOO close to the feeding animals now!!
