A pelican called "Big Bird", who lives at a safari lodge in Kigoma Region, Tanzania, has captured incredible aerial footage over the Mahale Mountains National Park.

The camera was attached to the beak of the great white pelican, to capture the view as it set off for it's evening flight over Lake Tanganyika.

As the pelican takes off from the beach, it flies over the shore of the lake, with the sunset behind.

The video was uploaded onto YouTube by Nomad Tanzania.
