Hwange National Park – Painted Dog Conservation Project

We enter the incredible Hwange National Park today. Situated in the far west of the country, Hwange lies in the incredible belt of Africa, spreading into the adjacent Botswana, permitting animals (specifically elephant) to wander freely between the Hwange and Chobe National Parks. Aside from elephants, the reserve is extremely well-known for its high population of Wild (Painted) Dog. Sadly, the numbers of these creatures are decreasing, but recently conservation efforts have been made a higher priority. We pay a visit to the Hwange Painted Dog Conservation Project today, where we get to view the work and passion that goes into rehabilitating these wounded and orphaned animals. This work is crucial to the species’ survival, as there are as little as 3000 remaining Wild Dogs left in the whole of Africa. We then make our way back to our lodge for a delicious meal and a good night’s sleep.
