I had a lot of luck with this bird on my last trip to Kruger (December/January 2013-2014 @ Letaba). I saw one visible from the main road, H1-6, after a heavy downpour of rain at the river. Too far away for pics but a really special sighting.

Also saw one two or three times in the same spot this trip. Heading down the S46/S94 from Letaba Camp - the very first river loop comes to a dip in a small rivulet. There I found this beaut.
