Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 15th March


It is a beautiful time of the year because it is so green. The contrast between landscape, morning or evening sunlight and animals is phenomenal. There are a lot of animals on our open plains with colorful migratory birds like European Rollers and Carmine Bee Eaters. Always when you are on game drive you will see flocks of Northern Carmine bee eaters following the car catching grasshoppers and other insects disturbed by the vehicle. It is difficult to take a photo of them in flight because they are so fast. Apart from following vehicles these Bee eaters are also following animals as well – like Elephants, Buffalo, Eland, Wildebeest, Baboon, Impala and Warthog for the same reason. I call them red arrows because the way maneuver is like the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team. Always when guests see them for the first time they get so excited. One guest told me that if these birds were in the nature reserve somewhere in Europe the reserve would make fortune because people will pay a lot to see them. Today I was with two guests and we managed to see them on the back of a Warthog.
