Fine Dining – Rough Dining!

Tonight the guests at Thanda’s Villa iZulu had just finished a delicious dinner and were still sitting around the dinner table when a high screeching sound cut into the conversation. After a few seconds of stunned silence everyone rushed outside onto the observation deck to see what happened.

At the small waterhole in front of Villa iZulu a pack of Hyenas had just killed an Nyala antelope bull. Illuminated by a floodlight more than ten of these strong carnivores where fighting over the kill and started having their rough dinner!

All agreed that this was certainly one of the most fascinating and memorable dinner of their lives – the fine and the rough part!

The picture shows a few of the Hyenas on the kill in front of the illuminated Villa iZulu.
