Incredible lucky to witness the wild dogs mating. They are my favourite predator and it is so special to see them in the wild. Let’s hope there will be puppies soon at Londolozi.

Let us hope so , fingers crossed for some of Londolozi’s best ever blogs and photos

It would be great to have a den close by!!! Wild dogs are wonderful………………

May your wishful thinking come to fruition. Wild dogs are fascinating creatures, the likes of which I never tire watching and learning. I’ll never forget time spent with a pack whilst they were hanging out, readying to go out on patrol – however there was a young hyena interloper that was waiting for an opportunity to cash in on their hunting skills that would not leave them alone. The experience was priceless!

Certainly hope your dream comes true and a den will occur on Londolozi. Wonderful story with exceptional images. The wild dog body coloration is so unusual which ends interesting with that white fluffy tail! The fight scenes shown were incredible. How much more so actually being there!

we will keep our fingers crossed for you James .
We still remember your reaction on the first wild dogs in Phinda!!

Best wild dog sighting, for sure! James, if they DO den on Londolozi, I’ll fly in just so I can share in that smile with you.

That is a very exciting prospect! If these wild dogs do den on Londolozi, that would be incredible!!

The Investec pack was seen on Djuma during the sunset drive today…and the alpha female’s nipples are swollen. Hoping they den nearby – if not Londolozi then at least on the SL traversing area! 🙂
