A close encounter with a couple of White Rhinos gave me a good opportunity to get a proper look at some Red-billed Ox-peckers Buphagus Erythrorhynchus that often accompany them. Rhino skin is very tough and despite spending much of their time amongst the thorn bushes, scratches are usually only superficial. The Black Rhino is a browser with a hooked upper lip. I hope you will forgive me for concentrating more on the rhino, but they were very big and very close.

Africa’s Big Five and Little Five

10,000 Birds

Originally a hunting term, the Big Five were the most dangerous and prized targets of the great white hunters on safari. Red-billed is the most widespread, occurring in both regions, whereas White-billed are only found in East Africa. A third species of buffalo weaver exists, the White-headed, similar to the previous two in structure but rather unique in coloration. Black Rhinos are best sought in South Africa, Namibia and Tanzania.
