Where Vultures Roam

But in the past it was dragons.

Another one of our preferred places to go hiking in South Africa was the Drakensberg (dragon’s mountains). We hiked up what is known as the amphitheatre, a cliff face of over 5 kilometres in length and more than 1200 metres in height. Standing at the ledge is an amazing experience. While we were looking out over northern KwaZulu-Natal, a lammergeyer (bearded vulture) came up from behind us, flew overhead and then dove into the precipice.

Where else does one have the chance to see such a large bird of pride from above?
