Hoopoe Visiting Sedia Riverside Hotel
The Hoopoe is a medium sized bird, 25–32 cm (9.8-12.6 in) long, with a 44–48 cm (17.3–19 in) wingspan weighing 46-89 g (1.6-3.1 oz). The species is highly distinctive, with a long, thin tapering bill that is black with a fawn base. The strengthened musculature of the head allows the bill to be opened when probing inside the soil. The hoopoe has broad and rounded wings capable of strong flight; these are larger in the northern migratory subspecies. The Hoopoe has a characteristic undulating flight, which is like that of a giant butterfly, caused by the wings half closing at the end of each beat or short sequence of beats.
The song is a trisyllabic "oop-oop-oop", which gives rise to its English and scientific names.From Wikipedia.

Daily@1700hrs or As Required
( Subject to Bookings )
Ask at Reception or Safari Office for more details
Cruise for about two hours.
Forget the dusty roads and potholes for a couple of hours, enjoy the waters of the Thamalakane River, highest waters for over thirty years, pass through water corridors lined with reeds, rushes and grasses opening out onto waters carpeted with beautiful water lilies and other flora.
Wonderful for the waterbirds, with many species now enjoying these favourable habitat conditions. The camera and bino’s may be usefull. As we go by Maun Nature Reserve, look out for giraffe, zebra, kudu, and impala. To see a zebra washed clean by the rain, dipping its head into the thick emerald grass or maybe witness a giraffe drinking warily from the river are visual delights which can be encountered. Spot the secluded estates of Maun celebrities hidden away in the riverine woodland.
