The sun was setting, we were in the middle of a herd of buffalo when this mature male lion emerged from the bush. He stalked the herd for a while but could not attack because he was alone. The buffalo will come to the aid of one of their herd being attacked and can kill a lone lion. They must attack in groups. On one of the following days we found this lion, sleeping, well fed with 2 other lions. They had teamed up and scored a meal. You can identify him as a mature/older male because of the amount of black in his mane.
