Lioness hunting seen during Game Drive

What an amazing experience to watch two lionesses stalking a young nyala ram. They had their plan well worked out. They approached the nyala that was on the edge of the road, by herding it from both sides of the road, one female each side. He managed to escape and they seemed a little foregone to have missed their prey.

Walking up the road again, they brushed sides with open game drive vehicles! Lionesses usually hunt in pairs or in groups with the males waiting for them to bring down a meal for all the pride. Males, however, take first and all others may need to wait for the dominant males to begin eating first.
