I dream of Africa – Hyenas – waiting patiently and more ….

Our morning game drive started by tracking some hyenas and we found them not too far from the buffalo carcass, which was still being guarded by the lions (more on that). There were six or seven rather attractive and well-groomed hyenas, who didn’t seem to mind at all that we were clicking photos of them and a couple of them came up to within a couple of feet of the vehicle.

The lions had reduced the buffalo to a carcass of bones and skin – in just over 12 hours – and they were all cleaned up with no sign of the carnage from the evening before.

We saw quite a variety of birds, more elephants, warthog, buffalo, and a water bok.
