Hyena Walks Right into a Pride of Lions

  • Published on Feb 6, 2018
  • Louis Le Roux (61) was on vacation at Gharagab in the Kgalagadi National Park when this incredible sighting unfolded.

    LatestSightings.com recalls his story: “160km North of Nossob, the camp was hot and very dry. The last 34km 4x4 track from Unions End to Gharagab took us 2.5 hrs due to road condition and we enjoying the different scenery of the Red Kalahari.

    Kraai (my wife and best friend of 41 years) and I, were booked into a cabin at Gharagab. On our arrival at 2pm the camp was quiet and it was cooking hot. During the evening we saw that there was a brown and also a spotted hyena at water hole with a few springbok and an eland in the background. The eland was very nervous and disappeared into the night without a sip of water. It was obvious that there were predators roaming this area as all animals were extremely cautious.

    At 03h30 next morning we were woken by lion roars somewhere in the vicinity. We both smiled and knew that was why we came all the way to Gharagab on the bad Kgalagadi roads. I decided to sit outside on the wood deck merely a meter above ground level and listen to the night sounds but my wife reprimanded me and said it was too dangerous. It was awfully quiet so I went back to bed. At 05h00, I was woken by “something” and I felt uneasy, what had woken me? I walked out onto the wooden deck from where I could clearly see the water hole. My neck hair raised as I became aware of “something” and a strange smell was in the air but it was dark and I could not see anything.
    I was peering into the night when I noticed movement happening in front of the deck. There they were, lions… Once I regained control of my heart beat and breathing rhythm, I smelt the familiar scent of them. By now all my senses were awakened and I was immediately aware of the potential risk and danger so close by. I moved slowly back into the cabin, which felt like eternity, only 3-4 steps. The damn wood floor of the cabin made an awful lot of noise, each heart beat was a canon sound against my ribs case. Kraai was sitting in her bed and asked in a lowered voice “Lou is it you, what’s wrong?”. From the open cabin door we were watching the lions and attempting to close the cabin door but with each movement and noise the lioness closest to the deck was looking right into my eyes. After a few minutes we realized that 3 lionesses were right in front of our wood deck. Previously we had experienced a close encounter with lions in the central Kalahari and we had no desire to repeat such experience. Once in a lifetime is too much. We stood dead still watching these lions less than 5m from our flimsy wood cabin, not out of curiosity but out of fear and respect.

    Times like these feel like an eternity and all sorts of thoughts flash through one’s mind. Dawn was breaking fast. We stood there exchanging eye contact with one another too scared to move or make a sound. Just before sun rise lionesses walked down to the waterhole and another 3 lionesses joined the ones in front of our cabin. We never even noticed these lionesses and again heart pounding and breathing out of control. For the 3rd time within an hour I was forced to regain self-control. I grabbed my video camera and videoed the 6 x lions at the water hole. From the water hole all 6 x lionesses walked back to the 4 x cabins and passed between cabin 4 and 3. As I was videoing the lions my wife mentioned that a brown hyena was casually walking past our cabin down to the water hole. The lions were now behind our cabin on the crest of the dune and were looking in all directions when they spotted the hyena at the water hole. The lions used our cabin as shelter to stalk the hyena. It was the hyena’s lucky day as he managed to escape the great chase of the pride.
    I have realized that any safari in Africa is a bucket list to millions of people and this fact made me understand what a privilege it is to be a true African. Getting into our 4x4 and towing our off-road caravan into any direction we choose with the benefit of nature right on our door step is an amazing blessing”.

    Female hyenas are skeptical about hunting hyenas because a bite can be dangerous, but a Male is an expert hyena killer. An adult will not give af and dive right into an attack with no remorse. It only takes it a couple seconds to kill a single hyena.

    *Hyena has a stronger bite force than a lion. Almost twice the bite force. Notice that lion stopped when it got close to the hyena and the hyena slowed down too cause the lion was at it's ass.*
    *It's not about strength. The lion can kill the hyena surely but it won't be an easy kill. With it's bite force, any lion it grabs while dying will have permanent injury which is another jungle way of saying "delayed death".*

    Lions don’t want to get injured, the hyena can bite them severely. As hyenas eat bones like butter, its bites are way stronger than lions.

    The lions looked young - you could still see the faint spots or patches on the juvenile crouching under the bush nearest the camera. There was no adult male (had there been, the Hyena would have been history) and although they weren't overeager to actually close in for the kill, their teamwork left a little to be desired; most of the lions were way too late to have a realistic hope of taking anything down even had they wanted to.

    For those who don't know lions have terrible cardio. If you had like an ostrich to ride on and had a spear you can pretty much tire out lions and kill an entire pride.
