How about an African 8 (just to fly the flag):

Goliath Heron
African Fish Eagle
Carmine Bee-eater
Racquet-tailed Roller
Ground Hornbill
Narina Trogon
Malachite Sunbird

PS the call of the fish eagle is very evocative of large
rivers in the African bush, the nearest I've come to it 
here is the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo - a similar release
of a wild spirit.
