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: This side-striped jackal was photographed quite late in the day - at 5.39pm - during a stay at Mwambashi River Lodge in Zambia.

Mwambashi is one of a handful of private safari lodge situated within Lower Zambezi National Park. The park itself - 4,090 sq km in size - lies on the northern bank of the Zambezi River, which flows along the park's boundary for about 120km.

On the opposite side of the mighty Zambezi is Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park, a World Heritage Site. Animals can cross freely between the two national parks.

Wildlife is prolific and varied, but the area is specially renowned for its large herds of elephant and buffalo. Lower Zambezi NP offers an exceptional safari experience for visitors, with options of canoeing, tiger fishing, game drives, and sundowner cruises available.
