After lunch we entered the Pilanesberg National Park again to continue our safari.

Not far from the Bakubung gate there is a small dam on the left where we saw a nice Reed Cormorant.

We then took a few gravel roads to Mankwe dam and on our way there we saw this Southern Yellow-billed Hornbill. It sat on the branch staring at us for quite some time before it took off. As if it got bored with us.

At Mankwe dam a Pied Kingfisher gave the birders with the big cameras and long lenses some good action photos of it hunting.

I was very chuffed to get a few pics of this African Spoonbill. A bird I haven’t had the chance of shooting with my camera before.

Pilanesberg National Park proves to me on every safari that it is not only a Big5 park but also an excellent reserve for birding safaris.
