Elusive wild dogs in Laikipia
We had a great time in the bush camp of Steve and Annabelle, Laikipia Wilderness Camp. We loved the bushy feel, the lovely staff, the great food, the beautiful setting, the wildlife and the dogs! Not only the wild dogs, but also Buster, the bush dog. Buster is an adventures, sweet, little dog, who gives the camp a homely feel. As a pup he used to challenge leopards, but now he prefers to stay on the lookout and hops into the vehicle for the occasional safari. The wild dogs are a specialty in this area. The local packs seem to do very well and currently they are denning. Although some of them are collared it still takes a lot of experience to follow them around. Steve is a real expert in that field. He knows the terrain very well and seems to be able to predict where the dogs will appear during their hunting sprees. Seeing the elusive wild dogs in action is very impressive, their teamwork, the social interaction even the sounds they make.
