Wild dog kill

Recommended Posts

Greetz fellow ST'ers!

 

Long time no see, I know. Been very busy with moving (semi)permanently to Africa. We're now doing our first eight weeks in the bush. Let's call it a trial run (it's not a real job yet, jut doing a bit of photography & video).

 

Had quite a bit of fun this first week, but it was also very hectic. Learning all the roads, for example (I've got my own game drive vehicle so I've got to know my way around.

 

Not going to bore you with the "regular" images. Let's just skip to the most fun sighting so far. A wild dog chase and a kill. The cubs (almost adults) were very inquisitive and came to smell my boots. As a bonus; we saw them again the next day, and then they were very playful.

 

Enjoy the images!

 

(sorry for the faint at heart, but there's no way to "disneyfy" this)

Great sighting and pics. Just curios - are you planning to start a safari business in SA? If - what kind ?

 

 

Cheers.

Hey Michael,

 

Don't know yet. We're on a sabbatical right now, so no need to make a decision yet.
