At the bird bath...Mosetlha Bush Camp. Madikwe


This is how I secured the door of my cabin.
If only we could do this back in the "real" world...
 
Right outside my cabin (Gemsbok) is this bird-bath.
I spent my first afternoon,pre-game drive,
sitting and watching the local birdlife. 

There were many of these Blue Waxbills 

Many thanks to Clive for the answer to my question.
