Description

The only Bustard we saw on the first 2.5 days in Kruger NP was the Red-crested Korhaan on the first afternoon. We really wanted to see some Kori Bustards, and by our third (and last) morning in the park we began to worry we would miss them.
Just as we were giving up hope, though, we encountered a pair of them not far from Ntandanyathi Hide south of Lower Sabie.
These are beautiful bustards, and the heaviest flying bird in the world.

Description

The first bustard of the trip was this Red-crested Korhaan, seen shortly after we entered Kruger NP. It wasn't scared off when we slammed on the brakes and then backed up to where it was standing right by the roadside.

Description from Wikipedia

Bustards, including floricans and korhaans, are large and highly terrestrial birds mainly associated with dry open country and steppes in the Old World. They range in length from 40 to 150 cm (16 to 59 in). They make up the family Otididae (formerly known as Otidae). Bustards are omnivorous and opportunistic eating leaves, buds, seeds, fruit, small vertebrates, and invertebrates.
