Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi) ; Lens: Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom; Focal Length: 220mm; Shutter speed: 1/160; Aperture: f8; ISO: 800

Location: Situated in the northern part of South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal province, Ndumo Game Reserve covers an area of about 9 000 hectares. It is renowned for its outstanding bird life -- a result of geographic location that attracts birds from regions to the north and south -- and boasts the the highest bird count in South Africa with some 430 species.

Those visiting Ndumo can enjoy interesting wildlife sightings at a number of attractive pans fringed with pale yellow-green fever trees and reedbeds, while the surrounding acacia savannah, riverine bush and sand forests provide additional opportunities to view a variety of wildlife.
