South Africa may be best known for the Big 5—but there is a whole class of creatures that deserves more attention when it comes to impressive wildlife in this legendary safari destination. We’re talking about Aves! Better known as birds. Within this taxonomical rank there is remarkable diversity in every aspect of their existence, from unique colorations to astonishing feeding, nesting and breeding strategies. Join Expedition Leader Lorraine Doyle to meet several of South Africa's beautiful and unique bird species as she highlights intriguing aspects of their lives, including the important roles they play in keeping an entire ecosystem functioning optimally. Lorraine has 18 years’ experience as a naturalist guide and educator in South Africa, with special expertise in birds of the savanna. She is also a passionate bird photographer, and you’ll enjoy seeing some of her images as she introduces you to her favorite species.
