Where to film jackals in Djibouti

The Black-backed jackal species are known to be native to the Horn of Africa (eastern part) which harbours Djibouti. Its reddish-brown colour and its fox-like canine features can help you recognise the black-backed jackal right away. Their social organisation comprises a monogamous mated pair that stays together for life. These species can be filmed in open steppes with brush and acacia, as well as steppes with few trees.

Filming jackals in Djibouti can be done throughout the year, but the best time to do this would be during the month of November to March and June to September. April should be avoided because it receives the heaviest rainfall followed by May, having the hottest temperatures of the year. Contact us here for expert help in filming jackals in Djibouti.
