Here is a gallery of some of the African wild dog photographs that we, the authors of the Photographer's Guide to the Greater Kruger National Park, have captured on our many visits to the world-famous Kruger National Park. 

African wild dogs are one of the 'super-seven' animals, which includes cheetahs and the big-five (lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos & buffaloes). They are also know as painted wolves or Cape hunting dogs.

If you struggle to find and photograph African wild dogs on your Kruger safaris you're not alone, as these are one of the  most difficult predators to locate!

We have been visiting the Kruger Park for more than twenty years and in the beginning we used to struggle to find wild dogs, but after spending over 500 days in the park we and our co-author, Trevor Barnett, have had just over 80 wild dog sightings on self-drive safaris. In this eBook we provide all our tips on how to find these rare predators and then how best to photograph them.

The majority of these African wild dog photographs were captured on self-drive safaris, on normal tourist roads, when we were on our vacations, which are anything from a few days over a long weekend, to annual holidays of 14-17 days duration.

"...the majority of images are really impressive, each chosen for a practical reason, sometimes annotated to stress a point.

The authors clearly know what they are doing. For decades they have mapped their sightings, and in explaining how they achieved their images, they’re sharing invaluable tips on understanding wildlife behavior, reading the signs and getting yourself in the best position for the shot. 
There is a phenomenal wealth of information here; real substance."

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information.
