Lions Attack Cape Buffalo in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania 4th of 4 DSCN1365

March 5, 2013 - While on a safari in Tanzania, we saw 7 lions - 4 lionesses and 3 young males - take down and begin eating a Cape buffalo over the course of 3 hours. The buffalo had a buddy who came to the rescue several times, but eventually had to give up. This is the fourth of 4 short videos showing the attacks, rescue, feeding frenzy, and vain attempts to escape.
