    Africa, have you seen lions on your trails. Krueger national park is a huge reserve. Lots of animals. They are protected. Unless a poacher gets to em, but you have a lot of men out daily checking for traps. The wire nooses.

    Mbender, you are very right about it all, except for one thing:

    I may have been misunderstood. The wild dog is a wild dog, that is it's species and what it is known as, wild dogs are not actual dogs that have gone wild. They are not called painted dogs, simply wild dog, and also the Cape hunting dog. They do not attack, they defend using growls and barks, but they know they can't win against lion etc, so they never attack.

    They do however, clash with humans, as they sometimes hunt cattle, resulting in them being shot.

    No I have never seen lion on a trail ride, but I have seen giraffe and buffalo, but only once. The horses you see in the video belong to a trail ride place in the bushveld

    I'm not arguing with you since that is your country and you know its inhabitants but I do know that the wild dog is known as the painted dog.


    Lycaon pictus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The African Wild Dog is a medium-sized canid found only in Africa, especially in savannas and other lightly wooded areas. It is also called the Painted Dog,

    Just so you understand where my knowledge comes from. No matter they are beautiful as is Africa. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful piece of your life! You are lucky!

    Ah I see, I understand now. You see, about 4 or 5 years ago, they started to alter or add onto the names of the wildlife, for example the Grey Lourie (bird) was changed to the Go - Away Bird.

    I didn't realise they also added names for the animals to, Painted Dog must be one of the added names... Very cool

    Thanks for sharing and for the info.
    You are braver than I would be, I would not be getting that close to wild animals like the cheetah, let alone touching them.

    The cheetah are actually tame, as are the lions... We walked with them at a game farm last year, it was amazing!

    Mbender, Im thrilled it's a dream of your's, sadly not many people care about Africa's wildlife anymore, so it's great to see all of you on the HF are enjoying it
