Lion have a hard time to kill a buffalo. This is because they defend themselves as a block, making it impossible for the lion to penetrate the Herd. A number of times rangers have come across wounded Lion as a result of their confrontation with the Buffalo.
Simon on early morning game drive with his Guests came across a buffalo herd chasing a pride of lion. It was a big drama as they had to flee for their lives. The cubs were not spared either. This surprised Simon and his guests and wondered who really are the true kings of the jungle, when in fact those known to be are almost becoming a kill. Lion is known to kill mostly solitary Bull buffalo which has been chased away from the herd.It will call for more than one lion to bring down a Bull Buffalo.
NB: * = Same animals seen by different rangers
