In this video it is incredible to see how a pride of lion attempt to take down a fully grown hippopotamus. Watch how the hippo turns to take its frustration out on a nearby vehicle.

25 year old, Dean Grant, works in the construction industry as a Finance and Operations Manager but during his off-time, he decided to head off to the Kruger National Park with his family.

We saw the attack quite early in the morning. We had driven into the park from Mjejane as soon as the gates were open.

We decided to go west along the river to start our drive. All our eyes were peeled, we were feeling fresh and excited searching the bush in anticipation, not knowing what our first big spot of the day would be.

The sighting ended when the hippo made its way down into a ditch off the road just out of sight. The lions where now taking turns at attacking the hippo and getting through its tough skin while the others lay up the hill in the shade panting and taking small naps.
