Battle at Nkombi Pan, by guide Keith Connelly. “I came across a pride of ten lions attempting to bring down a big buffalo bull. A two hour struggle ensued with the buffalo’s brothers in arms coming to his aid over eight times… Lions flew in the air, buffalos charged at lions and lions attacked the beleaguered bull in an all out war.” Photographed at Motswari, Timbavati, South Africa.

Run for your life, by guide James Tyrrell. “The hyenas put on a bold front as they faced the lioness across a gap of about 20 metres, but neither species made a move. One or two of the hyenas let out their eerie whoops to summon reinforcements, and within moments, the number of hyenas facing off against the lioness had grown. More were pouring in. Something had to break. It did. The lioness cracked first. Charging forward, she leaped at the hyenas, but pressed together as they were, they realised they had the numbers to confront her on equal terms, and as they didn’t back down, the lioness’ courage failed her and she broke off the charge, diving into a buffalo thorn tree.” Photographed at Londolozi, Sabi Sands, South Africa.(londolozi.com)
