This is the dramatic moment a lion single-handedly kills a young African elephant after riding on its back until it collapses to the ground.
The elephant, thought to be around three to four years old, was caught alone as it drank from a watering hole. Rare footage shows the young male attempt to scare the predator away by mock charging, before quickly turning on its heels.
He added, “It is sad but a natural experience of nature. It was a privilege to see it with the eye of the film-maker and with the watery eye of an elephant lover. For us it’s a unique experience that we will never forget.”
