the sun setting over Lake Karibia - viewed from Rhino Safari Camp

Sunset over the Zambezi and hills of Zambia, Mana Pools October 2013.   The birds flying above the sun are quellia, returning home to roost in Zambia. Huge flocks of quellia were an unusual feature

It is a overcast and dull autumn day in Centurion today so I think it is appropriate to share these colourful sunset/sunrise with all

The most amazing African country I've been to for sunsets has to be Namibia...

But Baja California was even more amazing that way (can one go on a whale watching `safari')?

That was a sunrise @@Game Warden, but if you're having a G&T I'll have one too.

 

@@laurab with me enjoying a G&T in the Mara as evening approaches. I know, how decadent... a Tusker pint jug! Plenty of tonic in there... honest :D
