A rare sighting at Selenkay Conservancy! Yesterday, guests at Porini Amboseli Camp were treated to a sighting of African wild dogs as they returned to the reserve after a safari in Amboseli National Park.

Safari guide Daniel Sayialel identified them as two males and a female and they were seen relaxing in the shade after killing an impala. They did not seem bothered by the presence of the vehicle.

Also known as African hounds, African wild dogs are one of the most endangered mammal species in the world. They live and hunt in packs – males stay within a pack while females migrate to find and join new packs once they reach sexual maturity. Just like our fingerprints, African wild dog markings are unique: no two patterns are the same.
