White-backed Vulture

Gyps africanus (near-threatened)

The species is the most common vulture of the savannas and is distinguished from cape vultures by its dark face and eye, white back and darker plumage (free of dark spots).

Our first sighting of this species was in September 2010 while visiting Ndumo Game Reserve in northern KwaZulu Natal.
