    Do the wild dogs bother you much?

    Juniper, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it

    X3emilygrace, lol, you're welcome to, if you don't mind the heat and living in my brother's room haha.

    And flytobecat, no the wild dog don't bother us at all, they live in the nature reserves, quite far away from where we live. However, we do get a bit of trouble from jackals. A few of them live in the open areas around our barn, and we often have a few chicken's dead or one of the horses attempting to squish it lol.

    Any other questions? :)

    Beautiful photos and I am so jealous that you get to see the stuff in real life that we only see on TV.

    The wild dog about 1min 7 sec into the vid. Does he have a breed or is he just a wild dog? I think maybe he is a jackal, but I don't know.

    Do you know what a zoo is? It's where we have to go to see these animals and then the poor things are all cooped up for our benefit.

    Do you think, or do you know of anyone who has tamed a zebra by having enough contact from a young age?

    Thank you for sharing, I really enjoyed it!

    AlexS, thank you, it is really nice to live here...

    The wild dog is just a wild dog, jackels are a completely different species, here's a picture so you can see the difference:

    I know how you feel in regards to zoos, over here we have animals that I would love to see in the wild, like cougars and bears

    Yes some one has tamed a zebra, not enough to ride I believe, but enough to stroke and groom... She's very cute from what I've heard :)


    Xmyilai, um... what?

    I didn't realize jackals looked so much like coyotes.
    Going to South Africa has always been on my bucket list.

    Here's another video... This one is only pictures, but it's still nice

    This video has pictures of the places my family have stayed at, and the things we've done. For example, you will see that we have walked with lions, stroked cheetah, sat with baby rhino, gone on trail rides in the bush, and much more.

    You will see the Kruger Park camps we've stayed at: Shimuwini, and the Elephant Museum at Letaba... The house you will see is our game lodge house, which is where the footage of the zebra was filmed in the previous video. You will see the Blyde River, and the famous and beautiful Drakensburg Mountains

    You will also see a few more pictures of the amazing wildlife.

    In this video is one of my fave pictures; a zebra stallion, you can't miss him :)


    One again, enjoy, and please feel free to ask anything

    Alex, the wild dog is actually called a painted dog. They can be very territorial and will attack if they have to. Sometimes another predator will kill their pups out of sheer competition for food.
