“Specialist cameras, including one fitted to one of the dogs, reveal the close-up and most intimate moments of life in a pack of Wild Dogs in the African bush: pups, hunts and tragedies”

They may be less formidable than the lion, less cryptic than the leopard, and less carnal than the hyena, but wild dogs are nonetheless the most successful hunters in the African bush. Weighing in at only 20-30kg, it is speed, agility and teamwork that allows these smaller predators to regularly bring down prey such as impala, and keep the big predators of the bush at bay!

The matriarch of a wild dog pack has delivered a litter of pups. Now, it is up to the entire pack to ensure their safety. As a close-knit team, they hunt relentlessly to feed the growing pups and their nursing mother, but their enemies surround them. Lions, leopards and hyena present a constant threat, and the pack is permanently on guard.

When disaster strikes, every member of the pack must risk its life to save the next generation. Witness the extraordinary world of wild dogs in this intimate journey into the heart of the pack.   

This documentary makes extensive use of hidden cameras, including one in the underground den, used to film the alpha female giving birth.
Some of the best footage on this DVD includes:

  • the birth of the puppies
  • their diet: the change from milk to solids
  • pack routines and rituals
  • solitary and pack hunting
  • regurgitation after a successful hunt
  • the pack’s distress when lions kill one of the male dogs
  • puppies being moved between dens
  • the pack fighting off a lion over a carcass.

This DVD is accompanied by a beautifully illustrated 24-page hardback reference book. Watch the close-up wildlife film and at the same time read the book to learn about habitats, diet, life cycle and more. The book is packed with intriguing facts, illustrations, photography and a 'Test your knowledge' quiz.

Filmed by Peter and Stefania Lamberti on location in South Africa.
