Mana Pools National Park is a hot, dry dusty place in November. The animals appeared listless in the relentless heat. Not so the Wild Dogs, aka “Painted Wolves”. A large pack had settled in the flood plain and needed to eat every day.
Having recently returned from a break in Mana Pools and managing to photograph these amazing animals for myself I was keen to attend this viewing.
I walked away from this astounding filmography feeling both sad and exhilarated. An hour of total escapism through the varied lenses of Nick Lyon’s professional crew we watched a snippet of a Dynasty; an excerpt of Blacktip and her mother Tait’s life – Mana Pools Painted Wolves aka Wild Dogs.
