Lion vs. Rhino

Recommended Posts

Hi SafariTalk!

 

My first Post here (sorry if there is a Topic about Lion vs. Rhino already).

 

Been guiding 20 years in +10 countries and happy to share memories/photos.

Rare sighting couple of years ago when I got good pictures of young male Lion hunting a Rhino in SA next to us.

Lion not even close to succeed but great sighting for my guests.

 

Would be great to see more pictures Lions vs Rhino... 

All the best!

A bit of wishful thinking there, on behalf of the lion! Certainly not a common sighting.

@SAFARILEGEND Did you see the whole encounter, start to finish? Did the rhino at any time turn to face the lion down?

@game warden Yes, saw the whole encounter. The Rhino didnt face the lion down and took off very quick, thick bush around so maybe thought more Lions around, better safe than sorry. The chase only couple of seconds before Lion gave up and Rhino disappeared in the bush. But all happened in front of us, so great sighting.

in the Thornybush reserve , I briefly saw a lion trying to stalk a mother and baby white rhino . 

the  mother charged  and the lion ran away, a long way away 

then it was back to grazing for the rhinos

it happened all too fast for a photo

Both very rare lion encounters.  The hippos seemed to just been stunned with shock.
