Selinda Reserve Becomes Africa’s Wild Dog Hot–Spot

October 28, 2013 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Last year there was an unusual sighting of three wild–dogs at Great Plains Conservation’s Mara Plains Camp in Kenya.


This year we bring you a story of THREE wild–dog packs denning, with puppies, in The Selinda Reserve of northern Botswana at the same time! This is exceptional and has left experienced guides and researchers absolutely in awe at what has transpired.

Each year we anticipate one of the most exciting seasons, when our resident wild dog pack, The Selinda Pack, dens. This normally occurs in June or July and the result has been as many as 15 puppies from just the one alpha female survive. However, this 2013 behavior, interaction and splintering of the Selinda Pack and interaction with neighbouring packs from adjacent concessions has produced activity that is truly remarkable. Selinda Reserve is currently home to three resident packs and, not only that, the denning calendar and alpha female dynamics are in total disarray and hunting has taken on new proportions. Traveling to the Great Plains Conservation camps during the “Green Season” assures a fantastic wildlife experience.

Read the full story and get to know The Selinda Pack, The Mopane Pack and The Makoba Pack; it reads like a Quentin Tarantino movie script with dogs possibly called Mr. Orange, Mr. Brown, Mr. Black, Mr. Orangey/Brown with a bit of Black and White, a few alpha females and perhaps a ripped ear in a fight or two.
