Birds and animals at Vwasa Lodge Safari Park, Malawi (Part 8)

We are continuing our time at Vwasa Lodge, Malawi and although the family and myself only spent 2 night there, it has taken me 2 weeks to post the photos!.  Hope you are still with me as there are more photos and video on animals and birds still to see, which this week were all shot in the evening or at Sunset.

Helmeted Guineafowl

In this short video look out for other birds such as White –faced Whistling ducks and Hadeda Ibis and a couple of Hippos having a tussle in the background.  You will hear cutlery because we were waiting for our meal (see below). These Helmeted Guineafowl were not far away.

Hadeda Ibis

Last spouse up before my date arrives!

Oh here she comes. She is very pretty.

Better just fix those feathers back there!  Got to look my best tonight.

Yellow-billed Duck

Everyone have a last drink before bedtime!

Big yawn.  It’s been a hard day!

Is that woman ever going to stop taking photographs of us!

Missus, hope you remember not to come out of your sleeping hut 
as we pass by later to get something to eat!

Yes Missus, we are the most dangerous of animals on earth!

CLICK HERE to see what I mean.  You better believe me!

Hey boys, wait for me!

I hope you enjoyed seeing the light fading, the colours on the birds and animals changing, culminating in this soft beautiful sunset sky.

Tomorrow I will show you how birds get a piggy back on the Hippos in WBW.

Thank you for visiting and also for leaving comments on this post.


  1. The ibis is stunning with his shimmering emerald wings! He may be my favorite! LOVE the hippo with his mouth open! Did you catch him yawning, or was he threatening you? The Egyptian Geese are another favorite. And the beautiful and graceful Impala.

  2. Wonderful trip and beautiful photos.
    The elephants annd hippos are so big and lovely.

  3. Dearest Margaret; I was SO impressed with the beauty of ibis and yes, the picture hippo with his mouth open gave me warm smile♡♡♡
