Nata Bird Sanctuary, Nata

#6 of 12 in Things to do in Central District
Nature / Park · Wildlife Area
Africa's largest breeding ground of lesser and greater flamingos, Nata Bird Sanctuary is home to 165 bird species, some game, and other wildlife. The sanctuary started off as a community-managed project in 1988. Its international importance was soon recognized by the Kalahari Conservation Society, which contributed significant funds and engaged locals to relocate their cattle and build a network of dirt tracks. The front desk offers guides with a bird list that you can pick up before hopping on an all-terrain vehicle and exploring the sanctuary grounds. Look for long-beaked pelicans, eagles, kingfishers, and blue-cheeked bee-eaters.
