Sightings like these we have not seen for several years so that many professional guides say they have observed more herds of wild dogs to Tsavo East for decades.
Yet in 2016 it had already been reported in Tsavo East and later saw a group walking along the seasonal river Hatulo Bisani.
The wild dog leads a nomadic life, and when the food is scarce can travel great distances so the question is whether the herd is sighted in passing, or relatively stable in this air, and considering that wild dogs are very elusive and so difficult to spot and play its activities mainly at dawn and dusk.
extraordinary adventure happened to four friends in Malindi residents who decide to spend a few giornoin savannah.
Among them is Anna, in love with a dream safari and caressing for years: to see a pack of wild dogs, which has almost lost memory.
For too long, he does not see one and are planning to visit some parks in northern Kenya where sightings are not uncommon.
Now all the friends know his passion for African wild dogs, for years.
Sunrise is the magic moment of the savannah and the four friends out of the tent camp where they spent the night, the Land Cruiser with their guidance, for the game routine drive along the Galana River in direction Sala Gate.
Few minutes and someone on board shouting "Anna, wild dogs!".
Maybe a little 'sleepy think the usual banter between friends and yet another mockery for his passion for these animals and with a wry smile on his face says "Sure, sure, Stop joking! "
But check the grass really is a wild dog, trotting up and then follow the other members of the group including a wonderful puppy.
A beautiful family with a lot of offspring that in all probability he was preparing to hunt in an area where the revived land still suffers from the previous dry season. The excitement is sky, unbelief well for the unexpected spectacle that looms in their eyes. Anna B, with emotion, began to cry and he can not even shoot the coveted wild dogs.
And 'as kidnapped by a mysterious force for good to the point that perhaps feels a favorite.
The gods of the savanna have made a gift of this wonderful emotion. Other friends, less emotionally involved, taking precious photos to document the exceptional event. Surely their sighting is confirmed that the wild dog pack has settled in that area: hunting, playing and all of this bodes well for a final return in the park of this animal in danger of extinction.
The news also confirms the success of a reintroduction project of wild dogs GeorgeAdamsonPreservation implemented by the Trust in Mkomazi National Park in northern Tanzania bordering Tsavo right with himself.
In 2016 they were released in this area of ​​wild dogs vaccinated against rabies and distemper because the species is sensitive to diseases spread by pets, one of the causes that threatens their survival. The wild dogs have an uneven distribution in different sub-Saharan Africa where there are areas in savanna environments and open bush.
From some reliable sources it seems that they remain only 6,600 across the continent. also known as "African dogs" are very gregarious and love to live in herds where there is a strong cooperation and altruism. The hunting pack for everyone, even for older animals, for the most fragile specimens or for those injured. The species was included in the list of animals at high risk of extinction.
At four malindine friends, returned from the safari full of excitement and adrenaline, it will remain a lasting memory of their successful adventure in the bush where every day something happens to particular and special. It 's the magic of Africa!
