Southern Africa Travel Guide

Painted hunting dog


Conservationists consider the common name for these endangered predators derogatory and detrimental to conservation. So we opt for “painted hunting dog” over “African Wild Dog”. These canids mostly live on the savannah. Unlike most other species, it’s the males that stick to the family they were born in. Females join other packs at about 1 or 2 years old. The dogs hunt in packs in spectacular, enduring, high speed pursuits and can be identified by their irregular yellow, black and yellow patches of hair. The dogs make a characteristic chirping sound, similar to that of birds. Although sadly endangered, painted hunting dogs can still be spotted in Botswana, Eastern Namibia, Kruger National Park and Mozambique.
