As the golden sun sets over Laikipia’s vast landscapes, I’m on the adventure of a lifetime. Our late afternoon game drive gifted us the sight of elephants strolling by a watering hole and lions basking in the fading light. But the best was yet to come.
Around a bend in the dusty track, our guide’s excitement was palpable – “Hang on, folks, get ready for a wild ride!” And boy, was he right! A symphony of yips and howls echoed, and out of the savannah emerged a pack of Africa’s Wild Dogs, their mottled coats like nature’s artwork.
With adrenaline rushing, we trailed these predators, witnessing their coordinated tactics as they weaved through the grass, a blur of motion and strategy. It felt like stepping into a live documentary, heart pounding to the rhythm of the chase.
In an electrifying climax, the pack pounced on their prey – a blur of fur and teeth. In that breathtaking moment, as the sun dipped, I realized I wasn’t just observing; I was part of the wild, a witness to Laikipia’s untamed beauty, forever etched in memory as a thrilling dance under the African sky.
Wild dogs are social animals, living and hunting in packs of 10 to 100. They sustain speeds of 50 km/h for almost 2 km. The pack tears into prey, devouring it quickly. A pack of 12 can consume an impala in 10 minutes. They hunt at sunrise and sunset. Lame dogs are cared for, sharing food and regurgitated meat.
