Two years ago me and a couple of friends were hiking in the Magoebaskloof near Tzaneen. We were having coffee on the stoep of one of the overnight huts when the stream in front of me led my eyes to the determined movement of a honey badger. I went into the cabin to report the news and fetch my camera to capture this rare sighting.

After a while the honey badger was right in front of us in the stream moving between and over rocks. The next moment the honey badger pounced behind a rock in the stream, panic and chaos disturbed the silence of the forest as the honey badger emerged with a young bushbuck clutched in its jaws. It was soon clear that there was only going to be one winner in this battle as the bushbuck gave up all hope of ever seeing the sun set again. The winner disappeared into the forest with its hard earned prize.

I submitted these photo's to the 50/50 television program and they were featured in the Veldfokus segment of 50/50.

Below are some of the pictures I took. The quality is poor due to the darkness of the forest an me only having a point and shoot camera on the hike.

Wow, amazing sighting, I can't believe a small honey badger could catch and kill a bushbuck, just shows how strong they are

Great photos. I have just one month to go until we come to the Kruger. I am really excited about seeing so may things, but Honey Badger is way up the list.
