We were told about a hyena den that was a few minutes’ drive from the Balule Satelite Camp, Kruger, where we were staying. Every morning and evening we would sit at the den and wait for them to appear but no luck. On our final morning at Balule, we tried once again and there they were. It was still pretty dark when we stopped at the den but decided to wait for the light because the pups were very active and playful. As the sun popped out I managed to get a few photos of the pups interacting with one of the adults, before they all wandered off further into the dense bush.
