Incredible images. The first picture if just the rib cage and no hyeana is stunning. Amazing experience with the tailless Tsalala female.

Ah patience and the opportunity to think out and plan shots, can pay dividends. Guests would often benefit by being prepared to sit it out .

The nighttime photos are absolutely stunning, certainly some of the most creative wildlife shots I’ve ever seen.

It’s fascinating to see what is missed at night, the interaction and how food needs are met….or lost. The photography is truly superb, as is the story telling. Well done, Alex!

Great article and pics. It would have been nice to see some pics of of lion- hyena interaction. I’m surprised that one single lioness was enough to drive a clan off the carcass. It was obviously short lived once they realized she was alone. It’s equally surprising that her pride or other lions did not come to investigate the commotion around the carcass. The stunning wildlife film, Eternal Enemies by Dereck and Beverly Joubert chronicles lion- hyena interactions at night. It is one of the greatest wildlife films ever made. I strongly recommend it to anyone that has not seen it and is curious about life in the African bush under cover of darkness.

Thanks for the amazing images Alex! I wonder how many shots you took for the whole experience to just get those few you shared? Must have been a lot! Well done story!
