The lions and the buffalo

One morning in Ndutu we came across the large pride of lions who appeared to be having a staring match with a Cape buffalo. The Cape buffalo was significantly outnumbered but he knew that he couldn't turn his back otherwise he might find a hungry lion on it. The lions were attempting to spread out to surround the buffalo, however the buffalo charged at any lion that strayed too far away from the group. Eventually the lion pride wandered off towards the marsh area in search for a less experienced buffalo.
