Amber explains the story to “After stopping for Coffee at Tshokwane picnic website, we heard from a person passing that there have been lions on a wildebeest kill, simply 5kms away. So we undoubtedly determined to go straight there.

When we arrived on the sighting, feeling amped and completely unaware of what was about to occur, I discovered the best spot simply on the bend of the loop the place I may look down on the lion on the kill.

When I first received there, there have been only some (+- 5) hyena, however after about 10 minutes, the lion was utterly surrounded by them. I may see vehicles a only a bit additional up the highway, which I assumed have been taking a look at the remainder of the satisfaction, which I later came upon that they have been.

I watched a hyena for some time working round with the Wildebeest’s leg after which observed that the opposite Hyenas have been additionally on this leg. By this time, I’m extraordinarily entertained watching the Hyenas struggle over a leg while listening to the lion chomp on the remaining wildebeest kill, nonetheless unaware of what was to come back.

Not lengthy after combating for the leg, the hyenas made a beeline for the lion and made all types of noise indicating that they have been up for a problem. This was after I knew one thing superior was going to go down.

One by one they went for the lion, biting his rear and attempting their greatest to get the kill however the lion was not having it and gave a superb struggle, as 1 male lion in opposition to 12 hyena may, for his kill. Soon after this began I observed that the remainder of the satisfaction, a number of 100 meters away, heard his moans and got here working to assist. This was when the females charged on the hyenas.

This all occurred so rapidly however wow! It was so superior.

I grew to become excited because the suspense grew, I simply knew that some form of drama was going to unfold and I used to be so prepared for it.

The sighting ended with the hyenas working for the hills, the lions regrouped and fell asleep within the riverbed.

For different guests to the park which can be at a sighting like this, the recommendation I might give is to only have persistence and persistence as a result of when there are quite a few predators on the similar scene, the motion of some type has received to offer approach.
