Default Samburu National Reserve Day 3

It was our last day, time to head home.

On the way out of the park, we stumbled across a pair of kori bustards, supposed to be the heaviest flying bird.

Finally, in the far distance, we spotted the elusive somali ostrich, which has blue neck and legs, as opposed to normal ostriches which are reddish pink.

Fun was had by all, and plans were made where to go next time there is a long weekend.

Hope you all enjoyed, and I did not bore you with so many wildlife shots, but Kenya is a beautiful country, with the best safaris on the continent.

Different parks have different wildlife, and some species are only found in particular places.

Full set on flickr if you like.
