    1. Yes, I did and afterwards I was really pleased with this visit.
      I was for me the most beautiful place during my trip through Kenia en Tanzania.
      I did not expect it but I guess that due of the rain in Seregeti.
      We had not so good time there unfortable :(

The kori bustard is the largest flying bird native to Africa. It is a member of the bustard family, which all belong to the order Gruiformes and are restricted in distribution to the Old World. It is one of the four species in the large-bodied ''Ardeotis'' genus. In fact, the male kori bustard may be the heaviest living animal capable of flight. This species, like most bustards, is a ground-dwelling bird and an opportunistic omnivore.
