The person who filmed the amazing sight said: ‘On my way to Lower Sabie Rest Camp I spotted a lioness on the side of the road and three buffalo on the river side. ‘As soon as the lioness saw the buffalo the chase was on. ‘The buffalo fought all the way till the end. I have never witnessed such determination to stay alive. It was quite tough to watch!’
