Location:The above jackal picture was taken around 5.45pm in summer while visiting the Kruger National Park, South Africa's flagship wildlife sanctuary.
Established in 1898, the park covers nearly 2 million hectares. As such, it is home to an impressive diversity of flora and fauna, including
507 different birds and 147 types of mammal. In addition to the "Big Five" - elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino - there are also large
numbers of giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, hippo, antelope, and hyena. Less common but also seen by visitors on safari are cheetah and wild dog.
