Leopard vs. Hyena

Grumeti · April 2018

The majority of leopard sightings this month were made up by Tuliea and her two sub-adult cubs. They have been spending a great deal of their time in and around Singita Sabora Tented Camp.

Mishi and her guests were treated to some fantastic interaction with her, the male cub and some hyenas. They had killed a gazelle and had hoisted it up a balanites tree and several hyenas picked up on the scent and started approaching the area. The male cub did not appreciate the hyenas sniffing around and proceeded to jump down the tree in an attempt to chase off the hyenas. The hyenas were not too concerned by his threats and remained under the tree waiting for scraps to fall while the leopards fed on the carcass.
