Taking into consideration how difficult it is to tackle traditional media, the methods used in this page are astonishing and precise. The image is clear, and cheerfully colorful!
I greatly appreciate the blend of colors over just using the common flat color technique. The mixture of black, brown, and even a hint of gold used in the dark patches of the African wild dogs is great! I love how the white fades into
yellow in Binti's fur; Her kiss-shaped spots are quite lovely to look at as well! Your use of blue/purple in your characters' shadows instead of using the classic grey or black is wonderful, and the glimmer in your characters' eyes is a good touch as well.
I've noticed that in the third panel a bit of green has escaped to the tip of Maua's tail, and a bit of brown has breached the line art of Fikra's shoulder in the last panel, but I'm not here to be picky.
I love how in the third panel, you've used different thickness of lines to determine distance between the characters. Many artists neglect to do this, and it's a little bit dissatisfying to see characters at different distances with the same line thickness... Blech!
The backgrounds of the panels seem to be minusculely bland, but I understand that the main focus of the page are the characters and their individual charm. I also must admit, how the brush fades from greens to dark blue is quite beautiful.
Overall, the dynamic poses and facial expressions of your characters are fantastic, and I had a little bit of a chuckle seeing how the "yap" bubbles were used for the wild dogs as they hunted Binti. Very clever indeed!
The barrage of colors are warm and pleasant, and the initial artwork is en pointe.
This piece (and the majority within your gallery) prove that you are no mere amateur artist, and I must express my gratitude for all of the passion, and hard work you pour into your artwork.
I expect great things in your future.
Keep it up!

'Wild dogs are some of the most successful hunters in Africa. 80% of their hunts end with a kill. Binti is one lucky kitty.' And here I hoped that the pups' parents would be friendly. :( Well, at least the pups managed to make friends with Binti - I saw that wink Fikra is giving in the last panel! ;P

Now that we've seen Marching Maua, I'm sure mom won't be happy about having the hunt interrupted.
