[:RU]Entertainment is not for the faint of heart. Feeding the hyenas in Harare[:]

[:RU]That could spell meeting with a bunch of hyenas on the African savannah? Pets are not very pleasant, so no good. And if that happens even at night, so hungry hyenas …
one eccentric old man in Harare did this entertainment is not for the faint hearted tourists. Every day, a few hours after sunset, he goes straight for the outskirts of the city to meet with swarms of hungry hyenas with a basket of rotten meat and feeds them. Please stick with at arm’s length, then just a hand, but in the end and did smeleet offering chunks of meat out of his mouth. The same is sometimes repeated bold spectators, tourists and even locals who too often come to look at this «show»!
To see how he feeds the hyenas do not have to buy a tour or to book a place in a number of spectators. Just come to the place of feeding, take pictures, watch or even to take part, and then in the end the old man to give money for a new piece of meat …
Upon arrival in Harar, we could not miss such an unusual «entertainment.» On the first evening, to find out where and how much feeding occurs, take a tuk-tuk and went to the night meeting with the hyenas …


2. How and when the old man had the idea to feed the hyenas under the watchful and enthusiastic views of tourists, nobody knows, but rumors about the fun gradually spread on the internet and now, some even specifically travel to Harar in order to see the feeding of hyenas with my own eyes.
If a desire to appear and you, remember where and what time to find this place.
In his place, and lured the old man, and hyenas come around 8 pm when it gets dark much. Independently find it is not very easy, not knowing the city, but it is possible. If you are staying in a new city, you need to completely cross the old, to leave his ip through the gates at the end of the market and turn off the cobblestones on the primer, leaving right off the main road. Then, without turning, I drive about a kilometer towards the savannah and the road will lead directly to a dimly lit by the headlights of the car with tourists or lantern old place. But it is better not to tempt fate on a completely dark road, and take a tuk-tuk, just to clarify, if the driver knows the place of feeding hyenas and pay him 100 Birr for the way there and back, and wait until it’s over.
