Don’t you just hate it, you queue at the bar forever, finally get your favourite dish ordered and it takes so long to arrive, that you have gone off to the gents (or ladies or gender neutral urinals … if they even exist?) when it arrives, and your friends have finished half of it.
Please take this slightly laboured premise 2000 metres up to Laikipia, with guide Josphat in the company of two cheetah boys. Every faunal guide book brays that predators loathe the taste of waterbuck, well these two spotted assassins don’t have that dietary requirement and are quite happy with a bit of water buck retention.
They filled their bellies before losing it to a rare and wonderfully marked striped hyena, an unusual patron of this high altitude Conservancy.
The striped one then had a comedy skirmish with a jackal. Nothing very festive about this whole episode at all. Perhaps a bit more boxing day, as children squabble over the best presents and eventually end up breaking them……stolen goods eh, actually make that Stollen…
