“This is the intimate and amazing story of a spotted hyena clan in South Africa’s Mala Mala Game Reserve, as told through the eyes of world renowned wildlife filmmaker Kim Wolhuter”

Hyena Queen follows a true story of high drama in the Charleston clan, a family of spotted hyenas living on South Africa's Mala Mala game park.

It's a family drama, rife with power struggles, intrigue, sex and clan politics. The matriarch, Gork - a brutal, barren queen - is ousted from the clan. She begs to be accepted again, in heart wrenching displays of submission.

A new Queen, Nikita, takes over and Gork is put firmly in her place as the lowest ranking clan member. But while Nikita accepts leadership of the clan, a huge pride of lions threatens their existence. Can she keep them alive and thriving and grow the clan?

This story is possible thanks to eight years of effort by world renowned filmmaker Kim Wolhuter, who captures the unfolding saga, achieving an extraordinary degree of acceptance by the clan. Weave in intimate personal character portrayals of clan members, the new matriarch sneaking off to mate with a nomadic male and the nightly survival strategies of this highly successful African predator, and you have an incredible and dramatic story that will give you a new appreciation for the African animal we love to hate.

  • Learn how the females control every aspect of life in this matriarchal society
  • Discover that the spotted hyena is closely related to the mongoose, not the dog
  • Watch very intimate and close-up footage of cute hyena cubs
  • Be amazed by the after-dark hunting scenes and see how a lion pride attacks the hyena clan.
