Hi Red Dune

As you approach Urikaruus from Kamqua you cross the river bed and as you go up the dune the den is on your left next to the road. There are a few holes. Just wait a few minutes and they will come out.

We saw them almost every day when passing. In my trip report are more photos.

Taken during my visit in March when it was very dry and the jackal had to work hard to feed themselves

They were amazing successful and caught up to 8 Sandgrouse per morning (at Cubitje Quap, north of Nossob)Image
