Great capture Byron. Awesome sequence of images. If the buffalo has got injuries from the lion attack will he not fall prey to them at a later stage?

The tailless female is one amazing lady. She certainly knows how to hunt and it sure looks like the cubs are paying attention to her strategy! I love the Tsalala pride, (but I’m glad the bull got away). I hope another meal was right around the corner though.

All the energy wasted . They better work as a unit or risk dying of starvation or pride weakened if the prime huntress r injured

Thanks for the amazing pictures Byron & write up James! I think that was a learning curve as he was a “bit too big” for one lion, but she is one tenacious cat that Tailless ones! Better luck next time

Great blog James and a great series of images Byron. I’m very happy to see that the bull managed to survive. Is it not usual for Buffalo to protect each other…why did the herd not move in to help him?

Thanks to Andrea’s F1 driving along the dirt road, through bush and on bumps, we managed to witness the post attack. Unfortunate for 2 of the Big 5, but a truly unforgettable experience for my wife and I. Great work Guys!

The tailless female looks like a sabertooth cat with shorter fangs.
