Cool birds
These birds fly in huge flocks and fly in waves.  It's really cool.  I wish the video was able to capture the experience better.

Useful travel sites

Welcome

This is our Africa 2009 picture site.  We went to Arathusa in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Pafuri Camp in the northern section of Kruger Park and Mashatu Tented Camp in the Tuli Block of Botswana.  It was an amazing vacation and we can't wait to go to Southern Africa again soon.

Please enjoy the pictures.  There are too many of them, but it's too hard to delete them - every one is special.

Some highlights that you probably won't recognize are the bush pigs, Kori Bustard and Secretary Bird.  Unfortunately the weather wasn't very good and a lot of our great sightings were in terrible conditions, so the pictures are grainy and unclear.

There are over 200 pictures and two very funny videos.  I hope the sound works (excuse the language, though).  I will try to weed down the pics soon.

Go ahead - click view album.
