In the heart of Maasai territory on the north-eastern boundary of the Serengeti National Park is a private concession of 10 000 hectares, set aside for the exclusive use of Klein's Camp's 20 guests. The spectacular location of the camp on the edge of the Kuka Hills commands sweeping views across a broad valley through which the annual great migration passes.
Hyena pup gets a scare!!
On a walk this morning with the trainee rangers, we were checking out some tracks, some of which were small Hyena tracks. All of a sudden I heard a russle in the grass and lifted my head to see a young hyena pup staring at me. It got such a fright and decided that I was much bigger than him. He put tail between legs and dropped a gear, running off through the grass. There must have been a den in the area but we decided not to intrude any further.
