A new YouTube video revealed by luxury travel company, Absolute Travel, "Pelican Selfie: One Beak. One GoPro. One unusual journey across the wilds of Tanzania has gone viral, believed to be the worlds first bird selfie, taken on a GoPro camera. YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1Ex_DobY8k.
New York, New York (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
The film was actually taken by an orphan Great White Pelican, known as Big Bird and features an unusual bird's-eye-view of remote Lake Tanganyika, and the scenic backdrop of Greystoke Mahale, a safari lodge in Tanzania, widely known for its access to the one of the largest wild chimpanzee populations on the planet.
Brooke Garnett of Absolute Travel, a private, luxury travel company based in New York, got the unique footage by sliding a GoPro mount that happened to fit perfectly onto the pelican's beak during her recent trip to Tanzania. Ms. Garnett says, My SLR camera has been my favorite tool to share my adventures from the field for years, but the GoPro footage captured my trip in a way a picture never could. I love this pelican, not only because he would greet me every time I stepped off the boat onto the lake shore or cause an outbreak of laughs from gawkingflirting!with all the ladies, but because he captures the main ingredients of an Absolute Travel trip. He sees a remote destination from a unique perspective, and then relaxes at one of the worlds best properties at the end of the day.
For twenty-five years, award-winning travel company Absolute Travel has made its mark by creating custom experiential journeys and they took that tradition to the virtual world, by capturing aerial pelican views of one of their favorite properties in Africa.
