Egyptian Vulture spotted in Mana Pools

Egyptian Eagle spotted at Kanga

 

We have some exciting news to share with the SafariTalk community! Recently, at our Kanga Camp in Mana Pools, two of our guides, Nic Polenakis and Cloud Magondo sighted an Egyptian Vulture.

 

As we are sure most of you know, this is an unbelievably unusual sighting as Egyptian Vultures are only rarely found in our part of Africa, as vagrants.

These Old World vultures are usually only located in North Africa and the Northern region of Kenya, hence, Nic and Clouds’ thrill and excitement when they came across this one and managed to get a few wonderful shots with the camera.

This is massive news for Zimbabwe’s birding community. Nic and Cloud feel very lucky to have seen something so unusual, and we feel privileged to have such knowledgeable and passionate guides at our camps.

 

We can only hope that a sighting such as this one will be documented again soon in Zimbabwe. Until then, we will be enjoying all the other wonderful bird life that Mana Pools has to offer.
