In early November 2019 my wife and I had the opportunity to go to South Africa and Zimbabwe for a once-in-a- lifetime vacation. While in South Africa we stayed at Chapungu Tented Camp and did morning and evening safari rides in the Thornybush Private Game Reserve (adjoining the western boundary of Kruger National Park). During one of those days, our safari van came upon a group of young spotted hyenas (called a Cackle) playing together. I was able to capture their rough play using my Nikon D7100 with a Tamron 18-400 mm telephoto lens. Exposure is 1/800 sec; f/6.3; ISO 640. Focal length used is 400 mm.
