A bunch of safari-goers within the Pilanesberg Nationwide Park had entrance row seats to a spectacular lion hunt. Two safari autos came across two lions attacking a buffalo, which quickly became an epic battle because the buffalo smashed into one of many autos in its makes an attempt to shake the lion off.
Jennifer Coleman and Liechen Tonkin filmed the entire scene.
‘We had been staying at Ivory Tree Lodge and our sport ranger (Kyle) requested us what we wished to see. My companion and I haven’t seen buffalo within the Pilanesberg earlier than and requested buffalo,’ Tonkin informed Newest Sightings. They then noticed two lions clearly chasing one thing and determined to comply with them.
‘In a matter of seconds, all of it unfolded proper subsequent to the sport automobile. We noticed the buffalo charging the lion, then the buffalo working and the lions’ in pursuit. My companion and I had been very calm – we sat – smiling at one another (it has all the time been a dream of his to see the buffalo and a joint dream to see a hunt).
‘We had been routing for the buffalo however had been shocked when the buffalo bumped into the automobile in entrance of us. My first thought when that occurred was, that I hope my digital camera recorded it!
‘The buffalo was very disoriented from being spun round and ended up crashing into the sport viewing automobile with a loud thud. This gave the male lion a giant fright and a while for the buffalo to get away and run off in the wrong way.’
