“We were making our way to a waterhole near Bakubung, as there is usually a lot of activity. We saw a black-backed jackal amongst marabou storks and some other animals. The jackal seemed interested in some of the birds.”

“By the end of it all, we lost sight of the jackal with its prize as the tall grass blocked our view. One really just has to be patient, when observing animals. Anything can happen at any time.”
