One never knows what they will encounter while on an African safari, and one particular group touring the Samburu National Reserve in Kenya happened upon a scene so rare that it shocked their guide.
“My family and I managed to catch an extremely rare event on camera during our recent trip to the Samburu National Reserve in Kenya,” the individual who captured the footage wrote on YouTube. “We knew it was something special when our guide’s mouth dropped open as soon as the lions jumped onto the crocodile.”
While they caught the entire first battle on film, by the time the second fight began, their camera was low on memory. They did, however, manage to take numerous pictures of the extraordinary event.
I don’t think the crocodile knew what hit him!
It may come as no surprise that the lions won in the end. The crocodile was, apparently, left somewhat crippled – as the video describes.
