GoPro Captures Incredible POV Footage of a Lioness Hunting a Waterbuck [VIDEO]

This video of a lioness on the prowl is the coolest use of a GoPro we’ve seen in a while. 

Kevin Richardson, a.k.a “The Lion Whisperer”, has a relationship with lions that only a handful of people on this planet share. Through years of practice, Richardson has learned how to interact with lions in the wild. He plays with them, hugs them, and even follows them on hunts.

In this video, Richardson attaches a GoPro Hero4 to the back of a lioness he calls Meg to record her movements. The camera captured Meg’s hunt for a waterbuck from start to finish. It’s fascinating stuff to watch the lioness as she slinks through the grass and sprints in for the kill.

Wild stuff, wouldn’t you say?

Richardson’s calls for Meg are a little bit cheeseball, but maybe that’s how you need to talk to a lion so that they don’t eat you. After all, he is called the Lion Whisperer, so I’m taking notes.

Richardson owns and operates the Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa, which serves as a lion habitat.
