I've found this rare South African bird twice in the Pafuri region in the past few years. I see that people attending the 2011 BBW also got to see it and I'm guessing that it might be in the same area that I've encountered it.
Both of my sightings have been on the last 2km or so of the S63 driving from the Pafuri picnic site to Crooks' Corner.

January 2009 - in the Fevertree Forest being mobbed by Crowned Hornbills which alerted us to its presence.

January 2011 - circling above the trees when one comes out of the Fevertree Forest into the more open area before the turn-off to Crooks' Corner.
