Wild dog-based eco-tourism in Venetia-Limpopo Nature Reserve incorporates a trip in which clients get a chance to radio-track the wild dogs with the researchers on the project.
Clients are given the opportunity to pick up radio-signals with the telemetry equipment, plot GPS points on a map and determine the bearing of the pack using a compass (triangulation).
It is strongly recommended that clients opt for the morning trips, as this allows more time to locate the pack. The temperatures are also more pleasant!
Although our tracking record to date has been excellent (88% of tracking attempts have resulted in a visual) no guarantee is made that we will get a visual on the pack.
