The Kali Brothers Take Down a Buffalo

The great wildebeest migration is in full swing and the Masai Mara and Serengeti grasslands have turned into action-filled wildlife playgrounds.

Recent Cottar’s 1920 Safari Camp’s guests have been lucky enough to get front-row seats to fabulous displays of wildlife mischief.

Every year hundreds of thousands of wildebeest make their way through the border between Tanzania and Kenya before heading west towards the Mara River. This season the predators in the area could not be happier with plenty of prey available to hunt.

A pride of six lions known as the ‘Kali Brothers’, meaning ‘fierce’, brought down a buffalo while guests watched in awe. This was a particularly memorable occasion. Taking down a buffalo is often a dangerous, difficult task and this attempt was no different.
