African Jacana (Actophilornis africana) identified by huge feet and claws enabling them to walk on floating vegetation in shallow lakes, their preferred habitat. At lake panic in the Park, you cannot help but get good pictures, they’re right there next to the hide.

The Jacana feeds on insects and other invertebrates picked from floating vegetation on the waters surface.
