Wild dog sightings have been prolific in the Timbavati and especially around the lodge.
On Friday morning we found the resident pack of 17 dogs a mere 400 meters from the camps entrance. They had just killed a small impala and when we arrived at the sighting they were feeding on the last bits and pieces.
That same day during the afternoon drive we were informed by the camp staff on the radio that the pack had made return and were hunting very close to the camp.
On our arrival we were stunned to find the Wild dogs inside the camp next to my accommodation feeding on a small impala. The Wild dogs had crawled in under the fence to get into the camp. They then proceeded to the reception area were they were somehow stunned at the small sculpture of a Klipspringer that we have at the entrance of the camp. They could not understand why this animal (statue) did not run away from them.
This was truely a memorable moment!
