I was privileged enough to be invited to guide for the Shingwedzi Birding Big weekend again in January 2017. It was great to be birding with a group that has now become good friends. The park was wonderfully wet and green and afforded some superb birding.
After Shingwedzi a numbre of us went further north to stay a few days at the new Pafuri Border Camp. This is a stunning camp and the photos below does not do it justice.
It was also great to be able to bird the Levubu a the crack of dawn and to sunset, something one cannot do from Punda Maria.
The trip was great in terms of lifers with me adding Orange Winged Pytilia, Thrush Nightingale, Racket-tailed Roller and Lemon-breasted Canary.
