At the end of our day's safari, just as we were about to have our sundowner, an African wild dog appeared nearby, followed by another one, and another! This was a first sighting for me, so without a second thought, abandoned the sundowner and followed the dogs. The first three were joined by seven others. It was clear they were excited about something. Having stopped for a drink of water they raced off towards the trees. Our excellent guide followed the squeals and whimpers of the dogs and we found the pack of 13 feeding on a recently killed impala. Black-backed jackals waited in the wings together with a committee of vultures including white headed, white backed, hooded, leopard faced and maribou stork. It was quite a scene.
