Destination news: Wild dogs and fam trips


(eTN) – News came in last week that wild dogs, aka painted dogs or hunting dogs, were spotted after a long absence near the Porini Camp on their Selenkay Conservancy outside Amboseli National Park. The pack of wild dogs will be a special attraction for visitors to the camp as they reportedly can only be spotted on the conservancy, not inside the park itself. This will, once more, give Selenkay a competitive advantage, besides the privacy and superb hospitality guests enjoy there already.
