This is the breathtaking moment a pride of lions brought down and savaged a buffalo just metres from cars full of stunned tourists in South Africa, with their guide saying that everything would be ok, as long as they didn't move.

The kill, which was recorded by field guide Marten Lange, saw two buffalo running away from a lion near the Mantimahle Waterhole in the Kruger National Park, before being pulled to the floor.

After the attack, the largest predator leaves the rest of the pride to finish their meal as he turns towards the tourists and takes a nap beside their vehicle.
