In the heart of Maasai territory on the north-eastern boundary of the Serengeti National Park is a private concession of 10 000 hectares, set aside for the exclusive use of Klein's Camp's 20 guests. The spectacular location of the camp on the edge of the Kuka Hills commands sweeping views across a broad valley through which the annual great migration passes.
Egyptian Vultures at Kleins!
Anthony, the trainees and I were out in the bush doing bird identification. Two vultures flew over the Kuka hills and we all lifted our binoculars. None of us were sure of what they were. All the books came out and after double checking, we realized that it was a pair of Egyptian Vultures. They circled overhead for about three minutes and then continued in the thermals. It was a "lifer" for almost all of us, very rare sighting. Its all happening in East Africa.
How exciting Lara! I have been coming to East Africa since 1995 and last year I saw an Egyptian Vulture for the first time at Kichwa Tembo. Even our Guide, Shieni, was very excited. Luckily I NOW have a photo to prove it.
