Hi! :D

I'd like to thank each and every one of you for making this thread what it is - a cure for early morning starts!

Thanks again :D

taken this time last year on the Phabeni road close to the S65 turn off. Hyenas do tend to stick around, so pehaps you can meet the next generation.

Bobong wrote:Hi there Graham. It is on the H14 intersection with the S131. Nice thing about them is they are quite active during the day around their den. Going there tomorrow so will report back on them with some pics.


There is also one on the H9, 1km from letaba.

I get daily reports of about 9 hyenas and pups everyday!
