“Discover the similarities between a pack of wild wolves and a pack of African wild dogs and see how their hunting strategies make them such successful predators”

This is the dramatic story of two hunting packs - a newly introduced wolf pack in America's vast Yellowstone National Park (Druid Peak pack, Lamar Valley), and the Madikwe wild dog pack, also newly established, in South Africa's Madikwe Game Reserve.

Spanning a period of two and a half years, this beautifully filmed story of the survival strategies of the two packs gives the viewer a never before seen insight into wolf and wild dog behaviour.

Set against the contrasting and magnificent scenery of the snow-covered American Rockies and the vast open savannahs of Africa, the film is also a comparison and contrast of two families that used to be linked over thousands of years ago. Different hunting tactics, feeding methods and social bonds are explored in detail.

More than a unique view of two families and their successes and trials, it is the story of two of the most successful predators on the planet: the wolves of Yellowstone and the ‘wolves’ of Africa.

The highlights of this remarkable documentary include:

  • stalking and chasing of prey during day-time hunts
  • hunting tactics and strategies
  • howling, playing, bonding and social hierarchy within the packs
  • mating and litters of young puppies, nurtured in underground dens
  • different ways of feeding meat to the pups

What a great learning experience those packs gave the film makers!

Written and directed by Robert Waldron for Discovery's Animal Planet in Association with Southern Star, Double Pack won the award for best documentary score and sound track at the North American Music Producer's Association Awards.

Narrated by Joseph Clark.
Filmed & produced by Robert Waldron for Wild Dog Productions (2002).
