Hi guys,

Not sure if u guys caught up with news regarding "Battle of Kruger" video. Heard on Radio 702 last week that the video had won an international award owing to its sensational footage & number of hits on YouTube. Currently over 27 million hits :D .

William Mabasa of SANPARKS also gave comment on it after news came through.

Any other news on this ?

Seems the National Geographic Channel will have a programme around the video at 9 am on May the 11th, unless I'm much mistaken. Check out the website on the net http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU8DDYz68kM

I for one will wake up on a Sunday morning to enjoy hearing the comments!

32,000,000 views (so far) on youtube and still counting...... We watched it again on Discovery the other day, even tough we have seen it before, it was still brilliant to watch again.

Wow- I watched the national geographic programme last night on an 8min clip that an American tourist made at kruger at the Transport dam.Lion attacking a buffalo calf which ended in the water.A croc comes along and the lions and croc have a tug of war with the little calf in the middle.The lions win the tug of war and as you think the lions are going to kill the calf the buffalo herd returns and attack the lions.The buffalo chase of the lions and the calf walks free.Amazing footage!

Amazing footage isn't it? 8)

It was filmed at Transport Dam, if you have a look in the Animals forum you'll see a whole topic on it, right at the top.

www.downthisvideo.com will save it as a file for you, you may need a different program for viewing it though, like the cccp codecpack.

And there are many other ways to download youtube movies.

I saw the doco on foxtel today here in Oz... are any of the Kruger people in the doco on the forum... I know the drivers name was Frank and the filmmaker was an American called David. If any of you guys are here on the forum, that was a really nice doco...
