These pretty yellow flowers are not part of the tree but a separate plant called a Leopard Orchid, which is the largest of the 500 Orchid species found in South Africa. It is not a parasite, taking its food from the tree, as many people believe but an Ephiphyte. That means it uses the tree for support and access to light but not food, as it has aerial roots and establishes a compost heap at the centre of the plant.

This White Backed Vulture caught the attention of our cameras this morning at Shiduli. As we watched it started getting restless and soon spread its mighty wings and took off, no doubt in search of food.
