A group of buffaloes gracefully pass through the African bush, straight towards a pair of male lions, waiting in ambush. The lions cease their chance just as the buffaloes entered into their trap and leap at the herd, causing the herd to do a U-turn and go into stampede mode.
When prey is being chased by a predator, their adrenaline and instinct kicks in and they just run, not always planning where they are running, as long as it’s away from the predator.
The below videos by Dr. Ehren Eksteen and Penny Osborne, which can be watched on the Kruger National Park YouTube channel, show this perfectly, as the herd runs straight into one of three tourist cars wanting to watch this incredible hunt unfold.
After the dust cloud settles, which was formed by the stampede, it appears that the car they crashed into has been thrown onto the grassy bank with very minimal damages.
Penny straight away drove towards the vehicle that got smashed by the buffaloes, to check if the people needed help.
Luckily, no one was injured and it was just the car that needed to be fixed.
