All looked lost when this young and lone buffalo was attacked by two lions in a South African national park.

But the pair had not bargained on the buffalo’s friends coming to his rescue, and moments later they were tossed several feet in the air before being chased away.

The dramatic scene was captured on camera in the Mjejane Reserve on the border of the Kruger Park.

It was witnessed by Oliver Matheson, 16, and his two friends Yaseen Majal, 17 and Alex Raubenheimer, 17.

They had joined Oliver’s father Ian, 52, on an early morning game drive and didn’t expect to witness a ‘kill’, let alone a battle between a hungry lion and a buffalo that had other ideas.

‘We had seen the two young lions on the prowl and were already quite excited to witness nature in action, but nothing could have prepared us for what we saw next’, said Oliver. . see more
