That is great news. I hope someone will manage to get a photo at some stage.

We have seen Brown Hyena in other parks and they are magnificent animals, but difficult to spot.

I presume this is the same sighting but one of the guys on the latest sightings groups are saying it was seen on H9 close to old Swartklip windmil. Was too dark for photos sadly :(

How exciting. I've never seen one in the wild. Maybe I'll see one around the next bend in the road. :pray:

Yes, it was on the road, 5am, but too dark for photos. But by all accounts a good sighting.
