 Cape Buffalo died near the Nkorho Pan two days ago from a respiratory disease. Since that time it has brought a massive amount of animals to the area which are competing for the precious food it can provide.

the skull is from a buffalo bull that died near the lodge.

It's been lying at that spot for a few weeks now. 

You can see a video where they showed us the skull by clicking here

The skull is all that remains from a Cape Buffalo who succumbed to respiratory failure back at the end of September 2007.
