Every evening, an inquisitive (and hungry) hyena wanders up to the Safari Lodge waterhole to scavenge for leftover scraps from the day’s vulture feeding.
He’s not always alone. Sometimes there are two or three hyenas that come right up to the front of the lodge where the spotlight illuminates the waterhole during dinner.
Guests of the lodge have been treated to wonderful sightings of the hyenas as they sniff around for scraps in front of the main deck.
Perhaps the hyenas are attracted by the wonderful dinner smells wafting out of the Makuwa Kuwa Restaurant, or maybe they are just investigating. Either way, all they get manage to find are a few scraps.
But that’s a hyena’s life!
The Makuwa Kuwa restaurant offers private dinners (advanced booking required) in the guest library area for special occasions.
