Exciting News Alert ‼ The TOOG Area Pack is denning ‼

A few weeks ago, the TOOG Area Pack settled into a den site for the fifth year in a row! This is great and promising news after the pack was poisoned in December and six dogs were devastatingly killed.

African wild dogs are seasonal breeders, with denning season taking place in the Waterberg from about May - September. During this time, the pack remains stationary at a den site to raise the alpha pair's newest litter of pups.

Pups have not been confirmed yet, as disturbance to the den site is kept to an absolute minimum and will only be confirmed in a few weeks using trail camera footage. However, their denning behavior does indicate the presence of new pups and we are all eagerly awaiting confirmation.

Plans are underway to organize guest visits to the property to see the pack during this period, so please stay tuned to our social media for important announcements regarding a 2024 Ecotourism Project!

Dabchick Wildlife Reserve

The Mabula Ground Hornbill Project was founded in 1999 and since its establishment has grown from a tiny project simply trying to learn how to reintroduce a complex, long-lived species like a ground-hornbill, to becoming the national conservation lead agency.

This was possible through strong collaborations over the years and allows the project to meet its mandate of first slowing and then reversing the decline of the southern ground hornbill.

💡The Mabula Ground Hornbill Project collaborates with private nature reserves, including Dabchick Wildlife Reserve, to conserve ground hornbills and maintain optimal habitat types for these spectacular birds. At Dabchick Wildlife Reserve, dedicated efforts are made to provide a sanctuary that supports the survival and thriving of these iconic birds.
