We found one of the packs because we heard a female calling the pack. She's been caught in a wire snare and had managed to get free, but you'll see from the photo the resulting wound.5a4b5eb829348_AWD5.thumb.jpg.df47b58397ba26d02ca913b27662a3d2.jpg

 

The pack heard the female and went to her.

We alerted staff of the Zambian Carnivore Program (ZCP), who came out the following day, when they darted the female, removed the snare and cleaned up the wound. We heard several days later that she was recovering well.

Morning Hunt. On the tarmac road in the Timbavati. A group of 5 were looking for breakfast. 25 km later they were still looking...

Last year we saw more than 30 individual dogs on 3 drives in the Timbavati. Yesterday on my first drive we saw the first dogs that the team had seen for 3 months. Just as last year a few decided to annoy a wildebeest.

It was nearly dark and I must say I was pretty happy with the performance of the D500 with a little noise reduction in Lightroom afterwards. 80-400mm lens @ 160mm, f/5.0, 1/1250 sec, ISO 6400.  I'm trying to use manual mode with auto ISO on this trip  and generally quite pleased with the results.

hmmm, looks like I got the pic in twice. Didn't mean to do that. I was just trying to put a comment, used quote. I'm going to try again with another pic so I can see how to do this.

Have recently returned from a 3 week assignment to Sth Africa & Botswana where I was most fortunate to witness and document this amazing encounter between a lone hyena and a pack of 8 African wild dog which took place in the Sabie Sand GR.

...

 

Incredible! I was actually physically flinching at every one of these photos, worried about the dogs being fatally injured.

How sad, but great they were able to help her. I wonder if she's still around.

My photos aren't great, but we were lucky enough to have three separate sightings on our 2015 trip. Two in Chobe- one they were laying around with the pups, and later that day they got up and hunted impala. We didn't get to see whether they were successful, as it was a long chase and we lost them. DSCF2573.JPG.d69054fc4fb6608dae992758f692991f.JPG

The second was in Sabi Sand. We were on a very small concession, and didn't get to follow them for long. It was getting dark anyway.
