Visit the endangered African wild dogs

The African wild dog – also known as the “painted dog” for its attractive colouring – is one of the most endangered animals in the continent. This package includes an outing to Zimbabwe’s Painted Dog Conservation Centre to meet with the volunteers who are working hard to save these fascinating social creatures from extinction.


Situated in a remote southeastern part of the Hwange National Park, the camp is on a private concession that is not open to regular Park visitors. Verney’s Camp is on a large open floodplain surrounded by mopane and teak forests in which Machaba Safaris’ tents are tucked.

Inspired by safaris of the past, Verney’s Camp is situated in a teak forest that is synonymous with Hwange. With views over a waterhole, the animals put on a daily parade as they come down for their evening drink.
