We have a dedicated topic to Sunset Dam and other photographic hot spots in Kruger .... for me the bird bath outside reception at Lower Sabie often great opportunity for some fun pics. The bird bath is always busy with the locals grooming themselves and having a splash.

Please also share your pics taken at this bird bath here with us :dance:

The first pics were taken in May 2013:

I agree DB, I always check out that bird bath but it was very quiet this trip, not seeing any birds each time we stopped at LS.
