On August 1, 2007 an eight minute amateur recording of a face-off between a herd of buffalo, lions and a crocodile or two in the Kruger National Park had been viewed more than seven million times on the internet, according to an article posted on ABC News.
According to the latest figure, Battle at Kruger has been watched well over fifteen million times. Drew Millhon reports how an American, David Budzinski, had been showing the footage to friends and family at home for the last two years until another man who had also been on the safari asked for a copy and "posted it on YouTube so that friends could see it.
According to Millhon, one of the founders of YouTube has called 'Battle at Kruger' his favourite video on the site. In the article, Budzinski is quoted as saying, "I was so lucky to be there with the camera, much luckier to be able to take some of the footage.
I truly was blessed at the time to hold it steady and catch what I did, because very easily, I could have missed so much." To see this amazing clip, go to "Battle at Kruger" on www.youtube.com
