20 March: Wild Dogs in Camp!

A very quick breakfast

There was a lot of excitement around camp this morning when a large pack of wild dog almost ran into our parking lot!

The game drives managed to view them for quite sometime before they crossed the river just below camp. We had heard all the excited chatter on the radio in our house and decided to walk up to the lodge to take a look.

We had just gone outside when we heard a loud shriek from a duiker in distress. The dogs had tackled this small antelope near tent six in the riverbed! I grabbed my camera and went down to see if we could get a view from the deck. What a view it was, close to thirty wild dog running in and out of the riverbed and feeding on the duiker.
