Pelicans on the LakeYour summer vacation would not be complete without viewing the amazing spectacle of thousands of flamingos creating pink carpets in the blue bays of the lake.

All this while great white pelicans soar from lake Shala to enjoy the fishing and execute their fantastic aerial ballet.

Then there are the pied king fishers that hover and dive, the fish eagles that protect their territory with their eerie cry whilst cormorants and darters fill the dead acacia trees creating strange silhouettes and beautiful shapes against the setting sun.
