November 10, 2011 — Jerry Connolly
Date: Thursday November 10, 2011
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Notes: Namibia, the dry southwestern corner of Africa, plays host to all three
of southern Africa’s great desert systems: the Karoo in the south, the Kalahari
in the east, and the driest of the three, the Namib, sprawling along the west
coast. So it’s not surprising that Namibia has, arguably, the world’s best
desert birding. When you add the teak woodlands and riparian habitats of the
Caprivi Strip and the waterways of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, the world’s
largest oasis, you do indeed have the makings of a fabulously birdy trip. And
Jerry’s safari took in more than abundant and diverse avifauna. There were also
breathtaking “up close and personal” views of many of Africa’s most spectacular
mammals—lions, elephants, giraffes, and rhinoceros, among others. In short, this
safari had it all, and with his gorgeous photos, tonight Jerry will take us too
on an awesome trip. Jerry has been organizing trips to Latin America and Africa
since 1996. He and his wife Janet opened The Audubon Shop of Madison in 1986.
