To be honest, Daan. We saw it everywhere! :lol: :lol:

This photo was taken on the Shongololo loop. We also saw some in Shingwedzi, Letaba and Satara. But Skukuza had perhaps the biggest group at the restaurant!

Ja it pays to pay attention to the Starlings.

Next time I will get a photo. I saw my first one at Satara too.
