This video shows that after a lioness left her wildebeest prey, a group of various African vultures like White-backed Vulture, Ruepell’s Griffon Vulture, Lappet-faced Vulture came to the prey. Two Black-backed Jackal didn’t have much chance against those large birds.

Namibia: Vulture Restaurant Opens in South
27 June 2007
A PRIVATE nature reserve in southern Namibia has created a vulture restaurant to keep the endangered birds away from poisoned carcasses and at the same time study their habits.
The vulture restaurant is at the NamibRand Nature Reserve (NRNR), south of Sossusvlei.
Providing food to vultures, writes conservationist Marc Durr, will minimise their exposure to poisoned carcasses put out by farmers.
Other problems faced by vultures are habitat loss, disturbance at nest sites, drowning in reservoirs and direct persecution through shooting and trapping.
It is hoped that the vulture restaurant will give researchers the opportunity to observe the birds at close range while they are feeding.
“A restaurant that vultures are attracted to fairly regularly provides a good opportunity to monitor marked birds,” said Durr.
This, he said, has been shown at the REST vulture restaurant at Waterberg.
In addition, the restaurant might reveal whether there are other vulture species on the reserve.
