Singita Grumeti Reserves boasts an exceptional selection of bird life. There are enough eagles, vultures and other large birds to keep the novice birders interested and an excellent array of smaller birds for the expert birders.
One of the striking eagles guests will likely come across in the Serengeti is the Bateleur eagle (terathopius ecaudatus).
Bateleur is French and it means tightrope walker.

If you’ve seen a Bateleur eagle fly you’ll know that this name perfectly suits its unsteady flying style. The eagles always manage to look slightly unbalanced, just like a tightrope walker.
