How Spotted Hyenas Adapt to Climate Change in Famed Tanzanian Park
In the depths of Tanzania’s famous Serengeti park, the mischievous spotted hyenas appear to be adapting to climate change. Researchers initially expected heavier rainfall in the region to cause carnivores to spend more time hunting prey than tending to their cubs.
This is because the increase in rainfall pushes herd migration, meaning the Hyena’s prey isn’t where it should be. This makes food more sparse for the species.However, the Hyenas of Tanzania have ‘laughed’ that theory off to researchers’ delight. “Spotted hyenas have always used social learning to find food”, said Morgane Gicquel, lead author of the study published in the journal Ecosphere.
A New Dawn for Tanzania Tourism Through Premier Documentary
The premier Royal Tour documentary marks a re-awakening for travel to Tanzania, and East Africa. I’m personally very optimistic about the direction of tourism in East Africa as we approach the heat of summer.

If you’re planning on visiting Kruger National Park in South Africa later in the year, you’ll be seeing some amazing changes!

That’s right! If you’re an adventurous traveler or even an adrenaline junky, Kenya could be the place for you.
Think glorious hikes, and mountaineering experiences, there’s just so much diversity in the amount of activities you can do aside from safari in Kenya, (although that is of course the most breathtaking experience to be had).
