Lions Killing Buffalo


A pride of lions stalks and kills a female buffalo and calf. The buffalo herd makes a feeble attempt to rescue the mother but backs off. Filmed at Duba Plains in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. Years ago, when the course of the river changed, the lions and buffaloes found themselves in a unique situation after being left stranded on a 200-square meter island. The lions had to learn to adapt in order to survive. And so they did. These Duba Plains lions stalk swamps, swim in deep water and hunt by day, attaching themselves to their prey and following their every movement.
