Buffalo hunter of Balule

Male lion at Pondoro Game Lodge

I took these photos on the 9th of December of the completely gorged younger coalition partner of the big Mohlabetsi male lion. This group of 8 male lions killed 2 buffaloes during the night, after I photographed them lazing around the day before. The Mohlabetsi male was feeding on a buffalo calf along with a younger male lion and the rest of the group were feeding on a subadult buffalo not too far away. The ongoing drought has weakened our buffaloes and made them fairly easy prey for a group of 8 hungry male lions.
