Take a good look at the photo below.
It is of a lion’s paw lunging in to grab a buffalo calf.
We weren’t there to see this action take place, but much of it was captured by a trail-cam set up as part of a Panthera leopard research project.
We’ve already seen some amazing results from previous trail-camera studies conducted on Londolozi, and this latest batch was no exception.
The following sequence is from the same event as the photo above, and documents the Ntsevu pride hunting buffalo in broad daylight, with no one from Londolozi even close by! Frustrating for our media team, to say the least, but it just goes to show how much is taking place on the reserve all the time; we just don’t happen to be there for much of it…
During these difficult times in which media is our main focus, it’s maddening to know that this took place without us, but I’m sure we’ll get another chance.
