Birds and nocturnal creatures


You will see and/or hear around 45 bird species in summer and somewhat fewer in winter during one of your birding outings.

The Chamberlain guide to Birding Gauteng writes: “The Kloofendal Nature Reserve is (still) considered a goldmine by birders, offering such gems as Malachite Sunbird, Wailing Cisticola and breeding Black Sparrowhawks”.
