The male lion keeps his head low as he glances at the group – the majority of whom stare back at the predator.

He stays incredibly still as he slowly moves his head to survey the animals, growling at one buffalo when it steps too close.

It is believed a buffalo herd of this size has the potential to kill a lion – especially if they consider the animal a threat.

It roars at buffalo who come too close to its elevated spot as the animals continue to curiously watch the predator

Mr Sheik said: ‘I was driving when I saw a herd of buffaloes blocking the road.

‘I saw a young lion on top of the marker post surrounded by buffaloes.

‘It was my lucky day indeed as this is a rare event. I immediately stopped the car and started taking photos.’

But before long, the lion is able to escape the heard when two female lions hear his desperate roars

But Mr Sheik said two female lions soon heard his roars and came to their nephew’s rescue.

He said: ‘Luckily for the young lion, his two aunts were in the vicinity heard his roars and came to his rescue.

‘They distracted the buffaloes and he managed to escape from the top of the marker post.’
