Thank you for that. :thumbs_up:

I think the visitors in the car got some serious and fantastic closeup shots of the stampeding buffalo. Apparently the herd were chased by lions??

I think the people in that white car must still be in shock about this unexpected incident! :wink:

This must have been a once in a lifetime experience to be so close to this incident! :dance: :dance:

People who saw car afterwards but have not seen the video probably blaming the driver for speeding. Shows how ignorant people can be without knowing the facts

I think I remember in one of Kobie Kruger's books she describes having to fill out an insurance claim form - charged by rhino. The claim was successful.
