A flooding river burst its bank right where a pair of buffalo were taking an afternoon nap; one minute they were sleeping peacefully and the next a rude awakening!
Greater Kruger, South Africa (26 January 2021) – At the moment, there is a flood occurring in the Kruger National Park. While the water is always needed, the flooding is causing a little bit of a headache for travellers currently in the park.
Many of the bridges have been flooded, cutting off parts of the park. This is all due to Cyclone Eloise. Latest Sightings Kruger sent us a video of two sleeping buffalo bulls that were sleeping on a riverbank when it burst.
We can just imagine how grumpy they must have been getting that rude awakening!
This funny sighting was captured by Mike Kirkman, a long-time guide at MalaMala Game Reserve while on a drive with his guests. While this is an older video, Latest Sightings decided to share this footage now because of the flooding that is occurring at the moment because of Cyclone Eloise.
Mike spotted these two old buffalo bulls sleeping in the Sand River that runs through MalaMala Game Reserve. Little did the buffaloes know that their slumber would be getting a rude awakening. At the start of the video, you can see the water almost touching the buffaloes, but, within 2 minutes, they are completely underwater.
The buffaloes, still a bit hazy from their nap, slowly make their way out of the water’s way and back to the bank. Take a look at the rude awakening below. What do you think these two had to say to each other after the ordeal?
