Amazing sighting. I believe that they plan the ambush although it is probably mostly by oppertunity and chance when they make a kill. We watched a aimilar ambush with Andrea and Bennet a few years ago. The Tsalala pride stalked Nyala close to camp and killed a young Nyala.

Great sighting and explanation!
