Would love to post report but fear our camera not nearly as high quality as those used in the reports I've read. Although I do think we captured some nice dramatic moments. Yes, we did see a Selinda cheetah, very sleepy.

@modelski I am sure we would love to read your trip report and see your pictures.  We are not all camera experts and your TR will be as enjoyable as anyone else's.

@modleski Yes, I agree with @wilddog Quality of the sighting and the tale is more important than the quality of the photos. Tell!

Okay, thanks all for the encouragement. I'm trying to figure out how to initiate a trip report. As soon as I can do this, I'll start posting a brief report. This was only our second safari, so what was exciting to us is maybe less exciting to members of the Order of the Pith, advanced members and so on (no kills, for instance). But maybe sightings will be interesting in themselves and advanced folks can remember back to their early encounters on safari and feel the initial excitement.

South Kafue national park, Nanzhila plains camp and konkomoya  camp/lodge, both can produce quite regular sightings

Now two weeks back from a 7day safari in Kafue National Park. Around Mukambi Lodge they get a fair amount of wild dog sightings. Although they might not see them for a week, I'm told the guides are pretty good at finding them.

When we stayed with Mukambi, they had wild dog sightings on at least two different gamedrives. Not sure if they also saw them on a boat or 3rd gamedrive as well, as I had to rely on other guests stories. This was between 9-16 october 2017.

Unfortunately we managed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time every time the dogs were seen (we stayed at 3 different camps). So, 8 african travels, 15 national parks/game reserves, our dog count remains zero. Which makes a good excuse to plan another trip to Africa ;)

I was in Mana Pools last week and had wonderful dog sightings on 6 of out 7 days, often morning and evening.  We watched them hunt on 3 occasions, one being especially exciting as the impala heard split, and some headed back to where we were standing, with dogs in hot pursuit - impala look much less dainty when they are running straight towards you at full tilt!

Wow! That must have been quite a nerve-racking experience!

South Luangwa has been really good for dogs this year. Check out the trip reports of Edward Selfe: Here or the blogs of Kaingo camp Here (pretty much every Big Cat Roundup mentions dogs) or Remote Africa's Game Viewing Diaries Here or the BushCamp Company's sightings Here. I spoke to a guest last week who saw 4 packs in two days in South Luangwa.

Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve in South Africa has a few packs. I've been seeing the dogs regularly over the last few months. That being said, its very difficult to guarantee a sighting. If you stay in the reserve at either Mpila camp or Hilltop and take an early drive out to look for them. They are often active in the morning.
