The day of the Jackal

23 March 2012

The plains around Lamai Serengeti are filled with stories day and night. There is literally always something going on. Yet not always are we lucky enough to get the whole story on what happened!

Like yesterday...

Suddenly there was this proud black backed Jackal that carried the fresh head of an Oribi. Looking at the Jackal’s speed and determination when it crossed our path, it likely just got hold of its meal. But had it been stealing or hunting? Who made the kill? And where could the scene have taken place?

Of course the Jackal couldn’t care less. The cunning little creature was just having a really good day...

What a place!
