Klaserie Sands River Camp

While out in the bush with Shenton Safaris in South Luangwa National Park we came across a remarkable interaction between two unlikely adversaries. A hot, lazy afternoon nap for three hyenas in the shade close to a muddy pool, was rudely interrupted by a young male warthog intent on having the place all to himself.

As he slowly approached them, he contemplated his next move and decided that an attack from the side would be best.

He paused to assess the whereabouts of his quarry . . .

. . . and then much to the consternation of the relaxing hyenas, his mane erect, he charged full tilt into them!

His adversaries scattered, he sauntered off to the bliss of the cooling mud, without so much as a backward glance.

Shenton Safaris ‘up-close and personal’ photographic hides are just one of the elements that make Kaingo Camp and Mwamba Bush Camp so special. Surrounded by spectacular game, these camps offer incredible game-viewing and bushwalking opportunities deep within South Luangwa National Park, Zambia.
