I Have seen quite a few Kori's between Lower Sabie and Tshokwane in the open veld. Especially in pairs

In June this year we saw 7 birds together, with a further 2 close by (all adults). There must have been a good food source around. This was north of Tshokwane.

A couple of pics taken on my previous trip.
