Initial sighting

Like for a lot of folks, prior to this trip, Brown Hyena have been hard to find in the daylight, or after dark for that matter. That changed on our latest trip. On this trip we were able to see and photograph 3 Browns. As usual Sherry made the best sighting of one lying under a bush which moved to a waterhole while we watched. These photos are of that animal. In total we took in excess of 1,000 photos of Browns this trip. Who knows when we'll see one again. Hope you enjoy.

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, founder of CAROK (Camps and Roads of Kruger)  South Africa
