Wow how great to have witnessed that! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I think we saw the same three male lions and the buffalo kill only later on as we were staying at Satara at the time and it was also in april and near 'Bobbejaanskrans'! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

It could have been Mike.It happened on the 7th of april around 5 in the afternoon.We went back there the next morning and there were an female that have joined them,but there were so many cars we could barely see the lions.The next day we were off to lower sabie though.
