African wild dogs in Save Valley Conservancy – Quality time with the Batanai Pack

The Batanai pack is one of our best known packs.  They currently number 30 dogs, after a successful denning season with 100% survival of their June litter of 12 pups.

I spent a great few hours with them the other day, and just wanted to share a few photos with you.  The pups are at that very curious and playful stage, and it was a fantastic opportunity to just sit and observe them.

Some of the pups found me very interesting:

While the adults were generally happy just chilling out in the last rays of the sun:

Always alert and playful, the pups never allowed for a dull moment:

They are such characters!

Back soon,
