One of the reasons I love the bush is that you never really know what could unfold. It was meant to be a morning drive to go and see the large herd of buffalo that had made its way onto Londolozi. There we were sitting in the long grass taking photos of the buffalo as they chewed on the cud. All of a sudden the wind changed direction; this resulted in one of the more entertaining cameos that I have seen… two of Africa’s most revered animals faced off against each other.
Everyone got away unharmed, but one could say that the buffalo won this battle!

Love, love, love that last picture!
Nice to see that they don’t win every time. Thanks!
last shot wow.
Seriously, this is SOOO cool! Thanks for sharing Adam and Lucien!!
One of the best moments of our trip….also one of the scariest moments, lol. Thanks again to Londolozi for helping my wife and I celebrate our honeymoon and have one heck of a story to share back at home!
Great photos…..last shot is amazing.
Great blog. I often wonder what the kill/escape ratio is.
Well, having just posted about Camp Pan and how they are all cats…lions are a different category of cat altogther; NEVER known of another species that would systematically attack it’s own offspring. That’s a puzzlement, and one that may be their undoing? Do I rememeber correctly…they aren’t biological brothers all? Just a coalition? So, cats are cats when they live alone, but as a coaltion they take on a different aura…so interesting to follow.
Can anybody confirm all 4 Majingilanes are together? Latest location puts them very close to the Matimbas in Nkorho…
