Lion & Buffalo interactions

This morning while on drive we found the pride of lions on lodge road. We followed them when a flock of guinea fowls started calling alarm having seen the lions. The alarm call aroused the attention of the herd of buffalo. The buffalo stood up and started charging the pride of lions in fear of a new born calf. The pride split up and ran for safety in the bushes. After a while the buffalo settled back down but where still very alert. We stayed with the herd for half an hour to see what the buffalo might do if the lions returned, but they didn’t so we left the sighting and carried on back to the lodge.
