This custom safari took Don & Maddy to some of the top birding destinations in Southern Africa in the company of one of the most fanatical and well-known specialist birding guides in the business, Martin Benadie.
After a few days in Cape Town, they traveled to the northeastern corner of South Africa to the Soutpansberg Foothills in the Makhado area. From there, they visited The Outpost Lodge overlooking the Luvuvhu River in the 24,000 ha Makuleke Concession, the wildest and most remote part of the Kruger National Park formerly known as the Pafuri Triangle.
They then traveled southeast to the Magoebaskloof Mountains for a two-night stay at Kurisa Moya Nature Lodge.
From there they moved on to visit two of our favorite destinations in Botswana, Savuti Camp in the Linyanti Concession and Xigera Camp in the Moremi Game Reserve.
In all, they identified more than 250 species of bird. Here are just a few of their terrific photos:
