The four were extremely active and we considered for a time that their playfulness would detract from the business at hand; hunting.
After 20 minutes or so the brothers calmed down and led us at a determined pace through the long grass.
A herd of wildebeest were spotted and all four instantly went into stalking position. Landela took advantage of a road with long grass between him and the herd to conceal a full charge from 150 metres away that intercepted the herd as it ran away from the other brothers who were making a more direct and visible charge.
As the herd cut towards the road Landela was lying in wait easily taking a sub-adult. Ltalo came within inches of taking down an adult before settling for sharing the young wildebeest with his three brothers.
Text book stuff that brings Landela’s kill total to six; and they are only 22 months old.
