Heading out on our guests final drive we were still in search of Rhino, getting desperate we headed to the Eastern border with the Kruger Park hoping to catch a unsuspecting migrant from the Park. Things did not look promising as where we once found tracks during the previous months, there were none. We even checked the Rhino middens and along territorial boundaries we knew of for recent signs of activity but as was with the tracks we came up empty handed. Our drive took us through some beautiful parts of the park that wound along the Sohobele River, so missing out on a Rhino went nearly unnoticed. We decided to visit the White Lion sighting to find out what happened over night and whetheror not the Mahlatini's did an about turn and in fact dispossessed the White Lions of their kill.. On our way back West we found tracks for the Mahlatini's, they had attempted to catch a Dagha Boy, after failing they continued their travels to the North East, good news for the White Lions. Before arriving at the sighting Herald had visited and found the Lions resting under the trees, the Hyena's took this as their cue to help themselves to a free meal. As stuffed and suffering indigestion as they were, the Lions were having none of it, stalking and chasing the Hyena's from the kill. On one occasion they chased six Hyena directly at Heralds vehicle, not looking where they were going it appeared they would run right into the side, only turning at the last moment to avoid an embarrassing collision. I bet it got his guests adrenaline pumping. While we were there they were back to being typical cats and sleeping off the mornings excitement.
