Having the wild dogs and their pups on the property has been nothing short of amazing. A few days after the initial sighting of them on the northern boundary, we had tracks of them all moving around central Londolozi. We were struck with a bit of luck and happened to stumble across the adults trotting straight through the bush towards us. With only all seven adults present, we presumed that the pups had been left behind and the adults were setting off on a late afternoon hunt.
After possibly jinxing it, the wild dogs disappeared into a treacherous block where we were unable to follow them. We decide to sit tight where we are while the other vehicles loop around to see if the wild dogs pop out on the other side. Within minutes Melvin’s voice crackles over the radio,
“they are highly mobile through the Maxabene River. One dog is chasing something, it looked like it could be an impala or maybe a nyala!”
Excitement levels shoot through the roof and we scramble to get ourselves there as quickly as possible to hopefully see some of the action unfolding. From there we are treated to the adults returning to the pups to complete the entire process.
