Elephant Plains Game Lodge

Big 5 Sightings 17 – 23 September 2012

Our Big 5 highlight of the week would have to be having wild dogs on our farm for most of the week. The pack of 14 wild dogs (8 adults and 6 puppies) entertained us by running around, chasing and killing impalas. They even had a stand-off with some hyenas. Another great week of game viewing at EP!
