I had a great time at Pakamisa (www.pakamisa.com)!
I enjoyed the birding course with Prof. Ian MacDonald, learning a lot about the birds in Kwazulu Natal and – despite the very rainy weather – I got some good bird shots. Staying at this beautiful place in the Zululand hills, enjoying the excellent cuisine and the five star service is a treat. And, as always on Pakamisa, I had the opportunity to take some good horse images.
I was only a bit disappointed that the weather did not allow for my first horse ride. Pakamisa acquired recently a horse which is strong enough to carry a portly gentleman as myself :-).
Well, I hope to be back at Pakamisa soon and I hope the weather will be good enough for my first horse ride 🙂

Baby Ostriches grow very fast. The seven youngsters are only three month old, but already almost as tall as their parents.
