We were blessed to be able to accompany a private park ranger on an off-road safari trip in Sabi Sands South Africa. We were in pursuit of a herd of water buffalo when we ran into this incredibly intimate herd of wildebeests. A new pride of lions had recently been seen a few miles from this heard which more than likely the explained their closeness and intimacy with each other during our encounter.
