South Africa is home to a few incredible locations where you have a good chance of encountering wild dogs in their natural habitat.
The best place, of course, is Kruger National Park. The park’s vast size and diverse ecosystems provide an ideal habitat for these fascinating creatures. To a lesser extent, there is a pack of wild dogs that live in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park.. The park’s varied landscapes, from hilly terrain to open plains, offer opportunities to spot these elusive predators.
Remember, wildlife sightings are never guaranteed, as animals roam freely in their natural habitats. That’s why a private safari is always better, because you can look for these ‘painted wolves’ all day, without upsetting the bird lovers in the back of the game vehicle.
