Create an itinerary including Nata Bird Sanctuary
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.
