Birdlife

The Best Birding Location in Gauteng

Dinokeng has eight different veld types, which means an extreme diversity of bird species frequent our area. The riverine bush around the Pienaars river and the close-by water bodies are especially productive at producing waterbird specials, which are listed below. Tamboti Bush Lodge offers great accommodation near Pretoria for birders, and the garden around the lodge is especially productive.
