Great cooperation between the two entities–appropriately rewarded!
Hopefully, we will get additional chapters to the story of the pups as they mature.

Wow guys that was an incredible week of videos, love to know how often and what the two adult wild dogs are hunting and feeding that lot. Even after disappearing for 10 days they still look in great shape

What a really wonderful surprise!!! I am so happy for the pupsand their parents and also for you at Londolozi (and at Malamala of course, too).
A big “thank you” to all of you who work so hard to find all these animals and make these videos which, I think, all friends of Londolozi enjoy immensely.

That was very very special. That pair of wild dogs are amazing parents. Here’s hoping things continue to go well for their litter. Gosh, we can’t wait until we can visit again- the videos keep us going!

The VERY BEST news! I have to say, with all of the amazing sightings and stories, this has been the most captivating to follow from the beginning. One can’t help but root for this pack from the get-go… the mom with one ear, the two of them striking out on their own, ect. And then the sad new of the possible loss of the 7 cubs. Now, the miraculous return of the pack (minus one). Literally breathtaking!!
