Camera: Canon EOS 450D; Lens: Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM; Focal Length: 400mm; Aperture: f/5.6; Shutter Speed: 1/100; ISO: 400.

Location: The above side-striped jackal picture was taken at 5.39pm, just after sunset, while visiting Mwambashi River Lodge in Zambia.

Mwambashi is situated within Lower Zambezi National Park, a spectacular wildlife sanctuary covering more than 4,000 sq km. The park lies on the northern bank of the Zambezi River that provides about 120 km of river frontage.

On the opposite side is Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park. Animals can cross freely between the two national 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.

There is no camping in the park, but accommodation is provided by a number of upmarket safari lodges.
