Shingwedzi for lunch. S50 up. H1-6 back down.

Kori Bustard. This is the heaviest flying bird in Africa, maybe in the world (the UK Great Bustard is also a contender for the title). They run over 20 kilograms sometimes, I’m told.

Tsessebe are quite rare in the park, so finding a small herd with calves was nice.

We found this tusker next to the H1-6 south of Shingwedzi.

After popping in to Mopani for a quick loo break we were off to Boulders Lodge, an exclusive non-fenced lodge south of Mopani. It consists of a large living area and six double rooms, sleeping a maximum of twelve people (but you can book the whole place out for as few as four people).
