I was on my way out of the Park and was travelling on the H1.1 near Delaporte Waterhole when I came across a small pack of Wild Dogs on the move. As I was towing a caravan I was unable to reverse or do a u turn and was able to get only one fair photo of one of the dogs who had a severe limp in his left rear leg. I only hope it was not caused by broken glass!

adw confirmed that there were four dogs so I'm sure this was Kamea and her pups which means that they still all seem to be OK!! :dance: This was taken in January.

Hi

I noticed that Kamea territory seems to be around Mathekenyane. This is where I saw a pack of 9 dogs - 4 adults and 5 young ones - on 26th Oct at 0545 hours. After about 20 mins on the tar road - H3 - they moved into the bush towards the rocks and I could spot them from Mathekenyane look out point. At 0930 hrs the same day I spent a relaxed hour with a pack of 17 dogs - 8 adults and 9 youngsters - on the H5 approx 2 km before it hits the S114. Since this is close to the 1st site, I am not sure if the 1st pack was part of this 2nd pack.
I am not clear on the id marks for Kamea, but will post some of the pics I have on the wild dogs sightings thread and perhaps you can see if any match.
Btw, this is a great idea for a thread :thumbs_up:
