Being surprised by the Ximungwe Duo as they popped into the road as we rounded a corner. We follow them for a while under the suspicion that the mother was leading the Young Male to a carcass. She had been out and about presumably hunting for the previous three days, it was about time that the Young Male had a feed. They stop for a drink before walking through a few clearings and eventually end up at a carcass where the Young Male starts feeding immediately.
Hearing over the radio that an enormous pack of wild dogs was moving through the open grasslands, we get there in time to see a portion of them feeding on an impala ram. It is always great spending time with wild dogs, especially when the pack is nearly thirty animals strong.
Enjoy this week’s Virtual Safari…
A single cub of the Ximungwe Female's second litter. Initially rather skittish but is very relaxed now. Birth mark in his left eye.
Having been viewed by vehicles from an early age, this leopard is supremely relaxed around Land Rovers.

Thank you so much, William. It is always great to see wild dogs.
