  10. Just a brief update: I have communicated with Track & Trail River Camp about them charging a park fee of US$30. They told me that ZAWA (Zambian Parks Authority) had advised them the park fee would be increased from US$25 to US$30, so that is what they published. The park fee has not actually gone up yet, so they are still charging US$25, like everyone else. As a side note, I suggested that the savings made by using one of the cheaper lodges outside the park could be put towards staying longer or paying for a private vehicle. Wildlife Camp charge US$200 per day for a private vehicle & guide Track & Trail charge US$375 for the same service. Quite a difference.
  11. At the time we saw it my guide insisted it was a Diederik Cuckoo. But we heard Klaas's Cuckoo calling the next day and when I got a chance to check my photos it was indeed Klass's not Diederik. Either one would have been a first for me, so I was happy either way.

  13. #182 Klaas's Cuckoo (Chrysococcyx klaas) Majete NP, Malawi. Nov 2017
  14. #181 This one had me baffled. In the end I decided it was a male Long Tailed Paradise Whydah in non breeding plumage. (Vidua paradisaea) Majete NP, Malawi. Nov 2017
