Hi cole!

I'm upset you didn't see the dogs!

Grant from the EWT was in JHB this week so he couldn't help.

But from WhatsApp and BBM I know you had a great time!
Thanks for sharing all your sightings!

Recently on two consecutive mornings, 27 and 28 July, while staying at Orpen's Tamboti camp, I had wonderful sightings of wild dogs around 7:30 driving along H7 towards Satara.

On both occasions I spotted them about 2 km past the S106 road.

It was my first ever doggies sighting.
:D :D :D :D

Hi to all wildlife lovers..
I am coming to Kruger in the end of this month, so I hope I can see updated wilddog packs sightings here. :wink:
They are my favourite animals although I havent seen them in Kruger yet (just in Hwange NP).
What other packs except Skukuza pack do you know about?
BTW, Who likes reading books about their etology too, I recommend book Innocent Killers by van Lawick-Goodall, which is about wilddogs, hyenas and jackals as well :thumbs_up:
