One of my favorite birds… hope to see one live one day. Its not just the big cats– the birds of South Africa are amazing in variety. Some of the bee eaters are also very beautiful, if not as flamboyantly colorful as the lilac breasted roller.

So true Brian. Its the small things that make the bush as beautiful as it is! Come and visit Londolozi and we will show you a beautiful Lilac Breasted Roller in real life, maybe we can even add a bee-eater or two! Good luck with your search!

An addictive photo subject for sure…I had to be banned from photographing ‘another LBR’ on our drives.
Thank you Werner for the informative story on this beautiful bird.

Stunning, also known as Mzilikazi’s Roller as its feathers were used for ceremonious activities.
