Limpopo-Lipadi’s emblematic wild dogs travel across the reserve in a matter of hours. The whole reserve of 20,500 hectares is their hunting ground and they easily cover the area in a day. That means that you can never be quite sure where to find them, even when you think you have located them via their collars. During the hot hours of the day they rest in the shade, sometimes in the thick and impenetrable bush and if possible near water.
These shareholders caught them in the early morning playing in some water and lounging on the road before they took off to find shade for the rest of the day. When checking the area later that day there was no sign of wild dogs anymore. They’d gone to explore new horizons.
