So!….join us for wine, tastings, conservation talks, good food and most of all wonderful adventures into Gonarezhou wilderness in search of African wild dogs, and the other fascinating wildlife that surrounds us…
African wild dogs have been seen on a regular basis in Gonarezhou and just two days ago I came across a fresh wild dog/impala kill, near Tembweharta pan and Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge. Wild dogs are fast and wide ranging, very challenging to predict where we’ll spot them next, but there is plenty of good evidence that they are around and thriving, hopefully with a few pregnant alpha females in the various Gonarezhou packs, so that we might be blessed with puppies soon!
