Wild Dog In Botswana

4 November 2009 | Jo Jenkins | Safari and Beach News, Botswana

A pack of wild dogs have been regularly seen on the Chobe River flood plains, Botswana. Guests were on a sundowner cruise watching a herd of elephants swimming across the river when they saw the wild dogs in hot pursuit of an impala running towards the river. The impala did not hesitate when it got to the river and instinctively started swimming towards one of the islands. Halfway across the river a crocodile grabbed the impala and drowned it barely twenty meters away from the guests on their boat. Meanwhile the wild dogs had started chasing a second impala which also plunged into the water but this time made it across to one of the islands. Guests saw lions virtually every day this past week, three of those on a kill!
