As many other species, the African Wild Dog once roamed the African continent in hundreds of thousands. Nowadays, probably less than 6,000 animals are left in the wild, while other (more recent) sources like the IUCN Red List assume there are fewer than 1,500 individuals left. There are probably less than 150 Wild Dogs left in Kruger National Park, despite the figures seem to increase again slowly. Therefore it’s always a special delight to find some out in the bush! Keep your camera ready as wild dogs are usually constantly busy hunting and very successful in doing so: on average 70% of their hunting attempts are effective, making them the most successful predators in the African savannah.
