Location: The above side-striped jackal picture was taken at 5.34pm in the last rays of the sun before it sank below the horizon at Mwambashi River
Lodge in Zambia.
Mwambashi is a private safari lodge situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River and lies within the Lower Zambezi National Park.
The park itself is a spectacular wildlife sanctuary, covering more than 4,000 sq km, situated on the northern banks of the Zambezi River.
On the opposite side is Zimbabwe and that country's Mana Pools National Park. Animals can cross freely between the two parks which ensures the wildlife is prolific and varied.
Lower Zambezi offers an exceptional safari experience for visitors, with canoeing, tiger fishing, game drives, and sundowner cruises available.
