The Breathtaking Battle at Kruger: A Babe is Saved

The Breathtaking Battle at Kruger: A Babe is Saved

The video that is presented for you below received a 2008 YouTube Video Award, winning as the best video in the Eyewitness Category.  Battle at Kruger is an absolutely thrilling documentary that was captured on film while a tourist was on a safari in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.  The spine-tingling, astonishing documentary shows a pride of lions attacking a baby wild buffalo, and the entire ensuing breathtaking battle that then took place between the group of lions, the buffalo herd and 2 crocodiles at a watering hole in Kruger National Park.  After the pride of lions and crocodiles had pinned down the cape buffalo calf, the angry herd of buffalo was prompted by the attack to fight off the predators and it eventually saved the babe.

During the video, you can hear a fellow traveler remark, “You could sell that video!”  After returning home, David Budzinski, the tourist from Texas who had recorded the stunning scene, did try to sell it, but National Geographic and Animal Planet weren’t interested.  Only after the battle, which is alternately horrifying and inspiring, became one of the most popular videos in YouTube’s history did the buyers come calling.  Last summer The National Geographic Channel purchased the television rights to the video, and on Sunday, May 11th, at 9 p.m. Eastern time, it will devote an entire hour to a documentary that deconstructs this thrilling wildlife drama.
