Leopard & Hyaena standoff

Makwela’s cub too clever for hyaena’s

After spotting makwelas cub near camp pan, we followed her through thick bush to find that there were 2 hyaenas following her.

She quickly outsmarted them and climbed up a tree. Once they had lost interest she came down and carried on with her territory marking.
