Hi ppl, I visit the park once in two weeks but I always visit the northern part of Kruger between Punda and Shingwedzi and I used to see lots of Hyaena's before near Shingwedzi but I cant see them anymore, I hear them at night when staying at Shingwedzi but cant see them, has anyone lately seen a Hyaena sighting in that area please tell me.

We saw this Hyaena on the S12 close to Girivana waterhole.

Did you Know?
The Hyaena is closer related to cats than to dogs... :hmz:

hi :)

saw this mom with her 3 tiny cubs for 3 days in the skukuza area. At the T-junction by skukuza turn right towards kruger gate, about 800m down on the left hand side is a no entry sign, you will see the culvert.

Camken, I know it was some time ago, but in Sep'10 we saw one with 2 cubs and the den was next to the H1-1 road as you will drive from Skukuza in the Malelane direction, but they were sighted just past Afsaal on the right side of the road. I am not sure if they normally go back to their old dens, but if you in that area, just be aware of the possibility. You will never know...

I think they just love water as I have seen them
in wallow puddles in Masai Mara on relatively cool
days - also in Kruger I have seen them in waterholes
on winter's days that was quite cool for the KNP.

Hi to all interested in these spotted dogs,

Early May this year we spend some time in Balule and were lucky to find a nearby Hyena den.

Observing their social behavior instantly converted all of us to love these spotted dogs.

After that first morning's encounter they were top priority every morning - we would only go and feast on the rest of the bush after spending an hour or more with the Hyenas.

Go to "Travel Reports" of this website and scroll down to "Balule Safari" where we detail their social behavior with a number of photos supporting our observations.

All I can say after visiting the Hyena den daily is "What wonderful animals !"



Also, there is no more African bush-like sound than the nearby call of a Hyena at sun-set.

Hi.We'll be entering the kruger park at the Phalaborwa gate in January next year and I've heard that there is an active hyaena den nearby with many individuals. Can anyone here tell me the exact location of this den so we can check it out?

Hi
I was there 2 days ago and it is very active with 9 hyenas.
It is about 1.3km from the + junction coming from Letaba, you will see a drainage pipe on the right hand side (Coming from Letaba).
