Tour to South Africa

In the European winter we often head off overseas, to warmer climes. We have just returned from a small group tour around the east of South Africa. We observed the BIG FIVE (elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, buffalo) and many more mammals, including great views of African Wild Dogs. Of course, there were a great many birds, too. Here is one, the outrageous looking Saddle-billed Stork Ephippiorhynchus senegalensis.
