An entire pack of 15 African wild dogs slept through a 1,000 mile journey from South Africa to their new life in Mozambique on Thursday.
Lined up neatly next to one another, the family of canines were ideal passengers for the seven-hour journey.
The dog flight was organised by non-profit organisation, The Bateleurs Flying for the Environment in Africa, alongside partners the Endangered Wildlife Trust.

The plane flew the dogs over 1,000 miles from South Africa in the hope of repopulating an animal population decimated by Mozambique’s 1977-1992 civil war.
