Is that how far those two tourists walked to the waterhole?

This hyena has spent a lot of time in the water today. I've seen them cooling off in the waterhole before, but this one spent an hour in the water earlier and another hour now - seemingly sleeping at times!

Any thoughts on whether this is abnormal behaviour? How come it's not in a den with the rest of its clan?

Seen it a number of times, especially at Satara. It is hot and she's cooling off. I also got the impression that she's heavily pregnant, so the water may be some comfort.

Rutting Rams :roll:


Probably just exercising. The rut's in winter. Looks like youngish rams. In winter it is quite a thing to hear them roar!

Kori Bustards back at Nossob


I have another question: are Kori Bustards territorial? We rarely see them on the cams, and then all of a sudden we're seeing them often at Nossob...? :hmz: :D

Hi JJ! Seeing that there is a hyena right in front of the cam just half a minute later, I'd say they are two of the spotted species as well. :thumbs_up:
