Two remarkable wild-life videos
In September 2007, National Geographic sent the Battle at Kruger filmmakers, David "Buzz" Budzinski and Jason Schlosberg, back to South Africa to film a documentary focusing on the video. The documentary, Caught on Safari: The Battle at Kruger, was shown on the National Geographic Channel on Mother's Day, May 11, 2008, at 9pm EST.
Taken from a vehicle on the opposite side of the watering hole with a digital camcorder, the video begins with the herd of buffalo approaching the water, unaware of the lions resting nearby. The lions charge and disperse the herd, picking off a young buffalo and unintentionally knocking it into the water while attempting to make a kill. While the lions try to drag the buffalo out of the water, it is grabbed by a crocodile, who fights for it before giving up and leaving it to the lions. The lions sit down and prepare to eat, but are quickly surrounded by the massively reorganized buffalo, who move in and begin charging and kicking at the lions. After a battle which sees one lion being tossed into the air by a buffalo, the baby buffalo — still alive, to the astonishment of the onlookers — escapes into the herd. The emboldened buffalo then proceed to chase the remaining lions away.

Following video is also from Africa, its for victory of zebra.
