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.
LEOPARD & HYENA SHARING A MEAL!
It was an incredible sighting! Never seen before. We were doing a night drive and we saw a leopard with a kill near silio stream. We watched him eat. Then something walked slowly behind him. We could hear the branches, but could not see what it was. He turned back and growled at it. It was a hyena. At first the leopard was protecting his kill, but later the hyena came in and started pulling on the opposite side. The leopard was pulling as well. Later they stopped pulling and decided to eat it together. It is not usual to see these two powerful predators sharing a meal. We watched for an hour and later the leopard decided to leave. We also decided to leave for our dinner after watching this exciting sighting.
We met the couple (at Mnemba Island) who you were with when you spotted this. They also showed us their photos and a video...amazing. Needless to say, Dave and I were very envious. Lucky you for coming across this rare event in the wild.
Take care and stay safe. Sandra
