“Watch the wild hunting dogs of Kruger National Park close-up and discover the reason for their abundance and success: the pack”

In an epic study over three years, filmed entirely on location in South Africa's famous Kruger National Park, the lives of two packs of endangered wild dogs are followed.

From award-winning filmmaker and writer Robert Waldron, Painted Predators will allow you to witness unique events, some never before recorded, as the pack moves through the cycles of life and death in a vast African game reserve.

The feeding range for a single pack can be up to 600 km2. These vast territories are shared with large numbers of spotted hyenas and lions. The film shows some of the fights over kills and the constant competition between the various predators, with lots of footage of hunting and feeding scenes.

Painted Predators demonstrates how the pack structure gives the dogs their resilience and ability to survive the other hunters. The social hierarchy, the playing, bonding, licking, grooming, scent marking and regurgitating of meat are all essential in building and maintaining a strong team.

Diseases are a serious problem for South Africa’s wild dogs, but their real nemesis is the mighty lion. The dogs rely on their superb eyesight and their strong social bonds to hunt and thrive.

Scenes you will see include:

  • astounding close-up wild dog and hyena interaction
  • the first emergence of young wild pups from the den
  • the unique and scientifically documented 'hunting corridor' tactics of the wild dogs in Kruger National Park
  • adult dogs and pups playing in the water
  • high speed chases and hunts, viewed from the air
  • rhinos chasing lionesses from a water hole
  • lions attacking a pack of wild dogs.
