Wow! Amazing sighting. Great video Julie.

Another example of ‘patience paying off’! What a fantastic sighting, Pete! I could feel the excitement as I read the story. The video was terrific too. When the dogs kill, the meal does not take long!

I would say that for the guests that was the drive of a lifetime

Wow Pete what an amazing sighting & needs no more comment 🙂 Thanks for sharing the blog & the guests video

That is such an incredible sighting!!! The kind that you experience once in a blue moon!

What an exciting day you and the guests had….which again proves that patience reaps rewards in the bush!

Wow! What an amazing sighting. It seems like these events are impossible the way they unfold often when you have been patient but are just ready to give up. Surprised and yet never surprised by what develops while on drive at Londolozi. Wild dogs leopard and a kill.

A pack of wild dogs is definitely a killing machine, unlike any other kill I’ve seen. I’m surprised that the leopard found any scraps to take for his own, as usually the victim is dismembered and picked clean. I witnessed a kill by several dogs on a warthog last year and will never forget the sounds and the frenzy that accompanied this event. Needless to say, there was nothing left – even the vultures did a fly by…… what an exciting morning and yes, breakfast can always wait!!

Great video!
