David told the story to us: “Our wonderful guide, Nick Murry, owner of Bushlife Safaris, put us in the perfect position to witness 30 proud lions galloping. 300 very thirsty Cape Buffalo swarms are swooping down to drink from the only water available for miles. We were standing on the edge of a cliff with no one else around, unaware that we were about to see something extremely rare! ”
“While in the waterhole, a dramatic battle broke out between the lions and the buffalo, the adults tried their best to rescue the calves and after about 10 minutes at the waterhole, the buffaloes ran backwards. up the hillside.”
“As the buffalo ran up the hillside, two lions attacked the two young buffaloes behind their herd. The two calves rescued by the herd were once again targeted and the two male lions rushed to kill this time the adult buffaloes were unable to rescue them.”
At this time, the herd of buffaloes rescued two buffaloes, but one of them did not survive because of the bites on the neck that made it difficult to breathe. The buffalo herd was very brave against the lion but still sacrificed a young buffalo.
Because of the life of the whole herd, they had to leave the young buffalo behind for the lions to eat as bait.
