Spotted hyena in Etosha National Park, Namibia

Did you know ...

  • ["Hyaenas are scavengers and usually clean up the remains of a lion kill.","They usually hole up during the day and are seen at Chudop in the early morning and late afternoon."]

The sound of the Hyaena whooping and giggling at night is typical of the African bush.

They are often heard outside of the rest camps especially Namutoni but they are often seen at Nebrownii, Charitsaub and on the Halali plains as they return from their nightly chorusing.

They frequent the drainpipes under the road east and west of Halali where they usually hole up during the day and are seen at Chudop in the early morning and late afternoon. Hyaenas are scavengers and usually clean up the remains of lion kills or steal prey from unlucky leopard or cheetah if they can.
