For anyone that knows the Kruger Park well, you may have heard of the resident African Scops Owl that roosts at the Afsaal picnic site. Just ask at the shop and they will show you where the bird is.

I have seen the owls there. Apparently there used to be a pair. Some young children were caught throwing things at the birds. Unfortunately one of the owls has not come back although the other which is presumably the bird you photographed seems to be quite unperturbed by all the tourists and sits in open view...
