We never did find a tiger, but five cheetahs was a more than respectable substitute.
The bush is full of little stories, each playing out in a tableau that virtually ignores the presence of humans in four-wheel drive vehicles. On this morning, we watched hyena and cheetah in a dance probably as old as time.
First, we saw three cheetah brothers, largely ignoring the hyena nearby but responding to the distant drum of horses.
Then we saw a young male and his mother being tracked by a single hyena. Needless to say, the hyena didn’t press the issue.
