Ndumo Game Reserve, Zululand, KwaZulu-Natal
Ndumo Game Reserve has the highest bird count of any reserve in South Africa, with an astonishing 430 species. Here, the great Usuthu and Pongola rivers meet, and their confluence has formed an extensive and beautiful wetland area, for which the reserve is well-known.
The wetland pans make the reserve a richly rewarding area for game viewing, most notably for its populations of black and white rhino, as well as crocodiles. The prolific bird life here includes the Pell’s Fishing Owl, Broadbill and Southern Banded Snake Eagle.
Game viewing on one of the reserve’s land-rover tours and guided day-walks in the reserve are particularly enjoyable activities for guests. Visit Ndumo Game Reserve
