In case you haven’t checked out the first part of this interesting tussle between the African Lion and the Cape Buffaloes, you can read about it here. When the Lion realised that the Buffaloes are getting too close for comfort, it got up and walked straight towards us and hid in the trench nearby.

The dominant Cape Buffalo and another bold fellow came up to the carcass and checked it out. Soon the herd followed in restlessly and surrounded the carcass. The dominant Buffalo soon caught the scent of the African Lion nearby, smoked him out and went after him. The Lion conceded defeat and fled the scene, relinquishing the carcass. We were happy that we were there to witness this tussle between the two of the Big 5 giants.
