Living with Spotted hyenas: the human story

Elina, wildlife and stones

Okambora is a dry, stony patch of ground in Sesfontein Conservancy. Goats nibble at the vegetation. At night, a leopard may come in search of one of them. Elina looks around as the sun sets, and smiles. Despite the hardship of farming, she loves this place.
