Brown Hyenas at Tswalu

I've just returned from a trip to an amazing wildlife reserve called Tswalu Kalahari.  I went there with Elsa Bussiere who is starting her PhD on Brown Hyenas (Parahyaena brunnea) on the reserve, and wanted to test out a variety of camera-traps.

Tswalu is a huge and beautiful place!

But over and above the gorgeous landscape there is a fabulous diversity of wildlife. Even though our objective was to locate and 'catch' the Brown Hyenas on the camera-traps one couldn't but photograph some other great mammals:

A Cheetah Acinonyx jubatus

Gemsbok (Oryx) Oryx gazella

Common Duiker Silvicapra grimmia

But the real prize was these guys:

I'll be posting more images shortly but if you want to know more about Elsa's hyena project go to her blog.
