white backed pelicans, on the move

Pelicans migrating, the route taking them through Hwange National Park, where there are numerous small pans.

White backed Pelicans migrate regionally within Southern Africa, drawn to the huge pans and inland lakes scattered across the vast region that is Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia. These countries all a have well known spot, favorites for the likes of pelicans and flamingos, such as the Okavango Delta, Makgadigadi Pans, the Zambezi River, Walvis Bay and Lakes Kariba, Tanganyika and Malawi, as well as lesser knows areas such as the Kafue Flats of Zambia, Barotseland in Zambia, Lake Benguerra in Zambia, and the coasts of Mozambique and Northern Namibia. I am sure the are other massive floodplains and waterways that I have not been to and am not aware of. The diversity of this region, and Africa as a whole always blows me away.
