Bird watching at the lodge is an effortless activity, as the tree canopy acts as a magnet, drawing a variety of bird activity. A bird feeding area and an active water feature will display a fine number of bird species for your admiration, often including the Helmeted Guineafowl, Yellow Hornbill, Glossy Starling and Meyers Parrot.
For a more focused bird watching experience, a 3 hour bird watching excursion alongside a trained guide in an open vehicle will take you into the Nata Sanctuary. An approximate of 165 bird species includes eagles, king-fishers, pelicans and ostriches. Mammal life that exists in the sanctuary includes springbok and other antelope, springhares, jackals and foxes.
Day trips to the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, an area dotted by palm islands which comprises the largest area of salt pans in the world, are taken via the Nata Bird Sanctuary. The Nata River delta is the cause of the large variety of water birds, as it feeds the Sua Pan in which pelicans and flamingos frolic.
