Kenya - Amboseli.

On an early morning game drive to spot wildlife as the sun was rising, I came across a comotion. The group of wildebeast were all running like mad - they were being chased by a hyena. The hyena was after the baby of the group - and after a chase that went on for a many minutes (we followed in our safari van) the wildebeast made a wrong move and the hyenas (another one had joined in) made the kill. It was such an interesting event to witness, feeling like something from a discovery channel documentary.
