The African Wild dogs aka the painted dogs as they are called are exciting to see in the wild. For the month of April, we are happy to report another wild dog sighting in one of our conservancies following numerous sighting reports by our scouts. Early one morning, at around 6 am while out on their routine patrols, our ranger duo bumped into a pack of wild dogs (there were about 7 individuals), but we could only capture two on video as they were calling out and seemed pretty undisturbed by our presence . One of them, probably the leader of the pack, was busy sniffing dirt on the ground and calling out the rest of the pack. We followed them for about 10 minutes before they sneaked into the dense bush along the sanctuary fence.
