Kwando Safaris has Puppies!
Kwando Safaris is proud to announce that puppies have been spotted at Lagoon Camp at the wild dogs’ den. Reliable as ever, for the 8th year running, the Alpha female has denned near Lagoon Camp and produced nine gorgeous puppies. The puppies were first spotted nosing out of the den in late July, and have grown a little more adventurous every day. They will gradually learn more and more about their environment, and in a few months, will start following the rest of the pack throughout the Kwando concession. At some point, they will no doubt find their way into our camp. Lagoon Camp is lucky enough to have regular sightings of wild dogs throughout the year, but the chance to see the puppies making their first forays into the world is a major draw card for our guests. For the Kwando Team, it’s a sigh of relief – another litter from this successful alpha female, and another chance of a good future for the highly endangered wild dog. There is nothing like a family of puppies to put a smile on your face! For more Kwando Safari sightings, please visit their July Sightings Report here.
