Location: This picture of a side-striped jackal was taken at 5.38pm while visiting Mwambashi River Lodge in the Lower Zambez National Park, Zambia. As I'd never seen the side-striped variety before, this was exciting and a good photo opportunity, although the light was fading quickly.

Mwambashi is one of a handful of private safari lodges within the Lower Zambezi National Park. The park itself covers an area of 4,090 sq km. It is situated on the northern bank of the Zambezi River and enjoys about 120km of spectacular river frontage.

On the opposite side of the river is Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park, a World Heritage Site. Animals can, and do, cross freely between the two parks. As a result wildlife is prolific and varied and Lower Zambezi offers an exceptional safari experience for visitors.
