The Game Rangers Association of Africa invites you to join us for a long weekend of exciting birding at Ndumo Game Reserve. The Reserve is a world-renowned birding destination on the South African and Mozambique border, boasting over 400 species of birds and abundant wildlife.  This will be the tenth year that the Association has offered these tours.

The weekend also includes vehicle tours to the Nyamithi Pan as well as opportunities to visit the bird hides and to travel around the reserve with experienced Field Guides.  The walks are planned taking into consideration the weather and the state of the Phongola Flood Plain.  These will be along the Phongola River, Shokwe Pan with its Sycamore Fig Trees, and in open woodlands will provide excellent opportunities for bird-watching with the possibility of seeing some of the Northern Zululand specials such as the Saddle-billed Storks, Retz’s Helmeted-Shrikes, Southern Banded Snake – Eagle, Gorgeous Bush-Shrike and Eastern Nicator.  There is no guarantee but there is also the possibility of seeing the more elusive African Broadbill, Pels Fishing Owl and African Finfoot.  At this time of year the migrant waders have return to South Africa and Nyamithi Pan offers good viewing of these waders.
