South Luanga N.P.,Zambia, 2011 Most lion kills at night, many times in the thickets. We witnessed a group of 20 lions take down an African buffalo in the afternoon and out from the thicket. Two prides had joined up, the Kaingo and Mwamba prides. There were 12 females and 8 young males. The pursuit and kill took over 20 minutes. As the African food chain worked its wonder, very little was left of the massive animal in 36 hours.
