It is always a priveledge to see these highly endangered predators. There is always some action around with them, especially when they have pups.

Wow, loved this story and the photos!

Have never seen wild dog pups.
Had an unbelievable opportunity to witness a 30 minute wild dog pack/wildebeest herd standoff in Tanzania with both groups making charges at the other.

SUCH an interesting article, Pete! Good for you! It really seems to be a flourishing and large pack. In all our holidays in the Bush we sadly have NEVER seen a Wild Dog in the Bush! We feel deprived when we read stories of Wild Dogs seen by so many other people! Amazing little animals. Such survivors! – Wendy M

Pete, we had seen wild dogs make a kill in Kenya, it was so awesome as sat devouring the kill🤗

So good to know the pups are growing and thriving. What a thrill for you and your guests to witness the activities of 21 dogs!

Oh wow, I was so lucky to see a wild dog hunt from start to bloody finish when I stayed with you. I was even more lucky as the guests who were first there thought they had seen enough and left.

I feel jealous of the guests who are clearly in for some good viewing

Thank you for a great report on the Londolozi wild dogs. We were lucky to watch a pack of them a year ago while on a game drive.

You are/were so fortunate to see Wild Dogs! My wife’s favorite predator but, as you say, difficult to find and even more difficult to witness the pack in action. As you said, they roam over large areas, as much as 20 miles in a day we’ve found. We hope they stay around Londolozi for a while!!!

Amazing to see wild dogs back on the reserve!!

You and your guests were fortunately be entertained most of the day with this large pack. Rare opportunity!
