Mapula and Lagoon Packs found denning

The guides at Mapula Lodge and at Lagoon Camp have both found the wild dog packs in their areas denning. As long as nothing goes wrong there should be puppies emerging in both areas sometime early to mid-August.

Thanks for this update.
How I wish, I were going back there now! Last March, the Lagoon Alpha female was definitely pregnant. We saw last year's pups hunting with the pack!

As has been reported by others Lagoon has puppies now, first reported as 12 but subsequently reported that it was 9.

Mapula had pups but they have died as the pack split earlier in the year and had a dispute over this den resulting in injuries and likely death to the mother. Following this the pack seemed to reunite so hopefully order is restored and perhaps a new den will follow.

What's the state of affairs with the dogs at Mapula now? I'm going next May 2010.

... and I'll be there in September. Maybe there will be another batch of puppies by then.
