@Antee - there should be more than just those two packs in the Kwando concession, though ............ It's 232,000 hectares of prime wild dog habitat!!!!

 

The Lagoon pack got to near 30 last year; early this year they split up.  The pack of 14 is at Lagoon and the pack of 13 is at Lebala.

I'm planning to visit Duma Tau,Chitabe Lediba, and Selinda Explorer's Camp in 2018 because I know that they are excellent places to see wild dogs. I will as be visiting Kuyenda,and Bilingumwe in South Luangwa National Park where I know that the sightings of the wild dogs and section of the park have been increasingly good.If I get really lucky I may even see wild dogs in Kafue National Park where I'm also planning to go.I expect to see dogs at Pamushana later this year when I stay there for a week before heading to Gonarezhou.

I cannot imagine the plight of the general game in the game drive zones in the next few months ............. Two big packs of dog needing to feed twice a day!!!! They've still got some of the genetics of the former Lagoon pack - so hopefully, buffalo too at some point???
