Waterberg Wild Dogs

The Waterberg Wild Dogs Conservation Project is driven and designed to protect the Waterberg Wild Dogs, landowners in the area, and the local game and environment. The project strives to promote and protect these Painted Wolves of the Waterberg, as they are affectionately referred to, and to negotiate safe passage with local landowners to ensure that they can remain free-roaming (as no other pack in South Africa has this privilege) as well as to promote local ecotourism in the area. Through this initiative, the team strives to change the perception of these magical and mysterious animals and show that this model can be implemented to boost the local economy, grow tourism, create jobs and most importantly conserve and grow the African Wild Dogs population.

The EWT’s Waterberg Wild Dogs Conservation Project is supported by the patronage of Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco.
