African Wild Dog
This is a species that many first time safari goers are not aware of, but it is one the most sought-out animals by experienced safari travelers. This species is very active, gregarious, and fascinating making it many guides’ (including our biologists) favorite species to find and observe. This is a highly endangered species and because it ranges over wide areas it is also one of the most difficult species to plan to see. During the denning season, the pack becomes tied to a fixed location and this is the opportunity to utilize for anyone that is seriously planning to try and find this species.
The Kakesio area south of the Serengeti can have amazing wild dog action hunting on the open plains during the wildebeest calving season (January through March) but that pack can be challenging to find.
