This African White Backed Vulture was captured on the 19th of March 2017 at the Olifants Private Game Reserve, Limpopo Province, South Africa. This individual was fitted with wing tags and a small (10g) tracking device mounted on the wing tag. We have seen some of the furthest ranging movements from this young lady as she’s travelled as far north as Zambia! She has returned to South Africa to settle in the Kruger Park area with occasional trips into Swaziland.
