 South Africa 

by Eric & Tammy Bjorkman
Sherry & Arden Hagen and Joan Durgin

	Join this VAS group who traveled to the country of South Africa in November 2014 along with a fellow birder, Janis from San Diego. South Africa is a very modern country so traveling was very easy with guide David.

	The group started in the beautiful and very birdy area of Cape Town, traveled along the coast and even took a pelagic trip. They ventured to the Ceres area before flying to the east coast to bird many areas around Durban including a one day trip into the tiny kingdom of Lesotho before heading to St Lucia on the coast.

	Their rewards were many on the this trip. They saw over 360 species of birds including both of the 2 species of Rockjumpers in the world & visited a penguin colony. 

	Seeing 2 cheetah brothers,  a family of lions, along with elephants, zebras, and all the other animals thrilled all of them at Phinda Reserve and elsewhere.
