On a safari drive through the Kruger National Park, visitors saw a lion along a road and witnessed an amazing sight. For a while, the lion ambled beside their car, but it soon became preoccupied by a lone kudu standing by the side of the road. While tourists gazed in amazement, he pursued the kudu after spotting an opportunity for a meal and ᴋɪʟʟed it.
The cars that are ᴄʟᴏsᴇly following and the barricade that has been set up on the opposite side don’t appear to disturb the lion as he nonchalantly crosses the street. The lion then chooses to start a chase after spotting a lone kudu on the road. As the kudu urgently tries to kick the lion away, the lion is able to grab the kudu by the rear legs.
In full view of all the tourists, this ғɪɢʜᴛ takes place in the middle of the street. The lion receives some hard kicks as he tries to hang on to the kudu. However, the lion seizes the opportunity and ᴋɪʟʟs the kudu as they make their way across the road to the other side.
In a pride, male lions typically don’t ʜᴜɴᴛ themselves; instead, they defer to the females. Because of their diminutive stature and lack of manes, females are less noticeable in the jungle. The male takes his share of the feast without making an effort, as the lionesses ʜᴜɴᴛ in packs. The ʜᴜɴᴛing parties ᴋɪʟʟ bigger animals like giraffes and occasionally even elephants.
However, the male lion would have to engage in combat to expel the other males from the pride. This lion in the video was probably one of the expelled lions. A lone lion typically pursues smaller prey, such impala and warthogs. But it’s unusual for a ʜᴜɴᴛer to be able to ᴋɪʟʟ a large male kudu for lunch, as this spectacular one did.
