Gareth van Rooyen, a highly experienced safari guide and wildlife fanatic, captured this incredible sighting on video near Kutali Camp at Classic Zambia Safaris. Gareth shared his story and footage with LatestSightings.com.

“The story starts with a leopard enjoying his meal in peace. When suddenly, a group of noisy baboons found him. The leopard knew that this would attract unwanted attention and tried moving its food to the nearest cover. But it was too late, the alarm calls from the baboons had already piqued the interest of nearby lions just a few hundred meters away!”

“The small pride of three lions got closer and one of the two males charged in at the leopard forcing it to abandon its meal. The lion quickly grabbed what was left of the carcass and claimed it all for himself.”

A lioness with the two males saw this and also wanted to get a share. However, she knew there was no way she could overpower him to get to the food. She needed to get creative if she wanted any chance of getting a piece. So, she came up with an ingenious plan…

“She approached the male, which Immediately caught his attention. There wasn’t much left on the carcass, and he had no intention of sharing any of it. Then just before he was able to react, she acted on her master plan, gently flicking her tail against his face. This unexpected move stopped him in his tracks! She then got even closer, rubbing her head on his neck. The male lion was totally taken by her actions.”

“Being in heat, she knew just what to do next. She presented herself in front of the male, who had now completely forgotten about the food just in front of him and was paralyzed in a moment of awe. This was the moment the lioness had been waiting for, and she quickly grabbed the carcass and darted off as fast as she could.”

“The male lion was taken by complete surprise and needed a second to process what just happened. But he quickly realized that he had been fooled and chased right after her. The lioness wasn’t fast enough to get away and ended up dropping the carcass before the male could catch her. Her disappointment was visible, while she walked off into the bush.’’
