Rhinos at Lake Nakuru

I made these photos some years ago in the Lake Nakuru National Park in Kenya. In the park live White Rinos that are introduced from South Africa and have a population of about 70 individuals. The area is the best place in East Africa to see rhinos in the (almost) wild.

Wooden Scaffold

This type of wooden scaffold is typical for construction sites in Ethiopia. It looks a little dubious, but they build multi-story buildings with it.

Birding the Sululta plains in Ethiopia

The Sululta plainns are a famous birding pllace in Ethiopia and easy to reach by 30 min drive from Addis Ababa. The plains a heavily overgrassed by cows, but the wetlands are good places to see some endemics of the Ethiopian Mountains.
