This venue has a lot going for it. The dioramas and the story they tell has excellent education and conservation content. They also do a lot of education work with local students and if you take the outdoors tour you are likely to see them (the students) as they learn about painted dogs and the threats they face from human... 更多
Excellent a place really worth visiting, even if only to make a donation to help preserve the wild dog. They are such a delightful animal as we not only seen them here but in the wild as well
They have a nice visitor center that tells the story of the dogs, explains the problems facing the dogs & need to protect them. We found the anti poaching informative & had no idea the extent of the snares set to trap animals or that an entire pack of dogs can die in the snares. They have taken some of... 更多
Very interesting, but I probably would not have gone on my own accord; this place was important to the lodge where we stayed and they took us. Saw one dog who was injured. Understand the hearts behind this effort, but according to the staff, the poaching rate has not gone down in the ten years this place has been around.
We visited Hwange National Park and on our way to Victoria Falls, our driver asked if we would let him see the Painted Dogs. We said certainly and it was simply wonderful. We would have never seen it. They have two dogs in residence. It requires some walking to see the dogs.
Spent a few hours at this facility on our last day in the Hwange area. Very informative guide and the facility is very well set up. Nice to see the painted dogs on site, and to have an information session from the guide on the dangers these animals face from humans.
I visited this painted dog conservatory with my tour group. The tour guide was very good and told the story of a particular painted dog very well. We also saw 2 painted dogs they had rescued. The staff here does very important work.
Having had the joy of spotting two painted dogs just outside the Hwange Nat Park, my desire to visit the centre was further heightened.The centre is very educative and although there are only two dogs at the moment one can fully appreciate the magnitude of the work being done on order to preserve the dogs. I particularly enjoyed the suspended... 更多
Wild dogs are in serious decline and this establishment offers a safe haven to injured dogs and those in danger, rehabilitating and relocating these wonderful creatures and studying their behaviour and environmental impact. The centre currently have 2 wild dogs in permanent residence - probably the best chance you will get to see any magnificent painted dogs.
Unfortunately there were only two dogs there at the time but the facilities are good and the staff friendly and informative.
