Great to see the pics posted of the lion kill at Satara on 15 May. My husband and I were staying in unit G167 right on the fence. I was making early morning coffee at 5.10am when I heard the sound of hooves - ran inside to get a torch only to find a buffalo surrounded by four lions. I had no sooner shone my torch when the largest of the four male lions jumped up onto the buffalo's back. Two of the lion did all the work, while the other two watched from a distance. The buffalo ran with the two lion jumping on it from behind. They ran the buffalo into the fence in front of the Wells Guesthouse a few times and then, the buffalo ran again, this time, in the direction of the webcam in front of the restaurant. The lions pulled the buffalo down in the waterhole and we thought this was the end, but the determined buffalo got up again and charged the lion. The next time they pulled the buffalo down was where it finally died. However, the buffalo was still alive when there was a distant roar from another lion. The buffalo eventually gave up and died about 5 minutes after the lion left. I think the buffalo died of shock and maybe blood loss. The lion all made off except for one, which was eventually driven away by hyenas who settled down to feast. Four of five hyena fed all day, until just after dark when the lion finally returned to take possession of their kill. We watched as they fed, and then a pack of 13 hyena returned at first dawn and the lion left once again. The vultures flocked in behind the hyenas having had a few scuffles with the hyenas over who was going to get the remains. The lions returned that night to what was merely a couple of shiny bones, but guarded them and chewed on them until early the next morning. Really was watching the whole thing come full circle. There was not even a trace of the buffalo within 48 hours!
