In yesterday’s post I wrote about hyenas sniffing and pawing at my canvas “cabin”, and I’ve previously told stories of predators wandering through the other wilderness camps we have stayed in. If you thought I was kidding, you need to take a look at the photograph in this post (see Camping in the Kalahari). As there is no camping allowed in the unfenced camps on the South African side of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, I’m assuming the photo was taken on the Botswana side of the Transfrontier Park.
So do you think he knew anything before the flash went off? Wild animals can be really quiet when they want to be. I now fully understand why one is told to use a torch at night and take a good look around before venturing out of one’s cabin/tent!
