She tried her best after this photo not to be seen by the springbuck, but unfortunately the rest of the camp wanted in on the chase and blew her cover.............

Beautiful and frightening shots :clap: :clap: :clap:
A few years ago there was no gate and hyenas could spend the night chewing your car. :big_eyes:
I experienced this situation for my first stay in Kalahari Tented Camp :mrgreen:
