Meet The Jackals

‘Meet the Jackals’ is the story of two golden jackal families trying to survive on the vast Serengeti Plain of Tanzania.  Raising a family can be difficult, but it is even more of a challenge for the jackals, who are faced with daily attacks by hungry hyenas. The hyenas are after the jackal pups, but both mother and father put up a fierce battle to protect their little ones. This film will follow the lives of one of Africa’s smartest and most sociable animals, and highlight the intimate relationships and the extraordinary bond that holds the jackal families together. The events of their lives in just one breeding season are full of drama, comedy, tragedy and tenderness, and the backdrop to their tale is visually stunning.
