Playful Pups


Playful Pups

It’s the most wonderful experience to see this pack of 13 African wild dogs, each with unique camouflage, and observe how the pups are growing and prospering. If you know where they’ve spent the day resting after their morning hunt you can spend an entertaining afternoon returning to the same spot and watching them wake up, get restless, start playing, and then harassing and nagging the adults to go hunting.

The agile alpha female dogtrots down a fallen tree, and the pack rallies for the hunt after a quick sip of water.
