There are some really awesome hyena photos in this great thread!
The following photos are from the Kamqua clan taken at the end of December last year! Here must have been more than 10 hyenas I would guess!

On top of the dune these lot were busy on a kill!

We were staying at TR at the time. This morning I went for a game drive towards Houmoed.
At around 10:00 I spotted this brown hyena in the dunes on the left side of the road just before the waterhole.
Luckily the brown hyena decided to come and have a drink at the waterhole.

Here the brown hyena crosses the road to the Houmoed waterhole . . .

Image

I will post another picture where the brown hyena is drinking.
