There is a den about 1km south of the Urikaruus turnoff where we saw this family unit on a daily basis. It looks as if the mom is giving the little guy a talking to.

Such awesome photographs everybody. I do believe that the clan from den just south of Urikaruus have moved further south to Kamqua..directly opposite the waterhole. We did not see one hyena near or at Urikaruus during our 3 day stay there....29-31 Dec. Plenty of hyena action around Kamqua though.

We also saw hyenas at Kamsferboom...we enjoyed watching them wallow in the water.....
