The ratites — ostriches, emus, rheas, cassowaries and kiwis — have a special charm, having adapted to a flightless lifestyle in contrast with bird species which regularly fly.



Spotting ostriches from afar is a special joy on a safari, as they represent the vitality of life on the savanna. This group was underneath circling vultures near a leopard kill in a tree.
