Birds ahoy

Birds of a feather…

Birds of a Feather. Yes, Twitcher types, we are with you! Here are 5 reasons why birders love to visit Nambiti Plains Lodge. 

#1 Our location

Nambiti Plains Lodge is located in the Nambiti Big 5 Private Game Reserve. The reserve boasts incredible biodiversity – including savannah, thornveld, extensive grasslands, an abundance of natural water and the beautiful cascades of the Sundays River. This pristine habitat makes the reserve a bird lover’s paradise.

#2 Species diversity 

Nambiti Big 5 Private Game Reserve is home to almost 200 species of birds, giving you a long list to discover. 

#3 We’re birders ourselves

The lodge has a comprehensive range of birding reference books and our guides all have a particular passion for birding. You’ll be impressed by their extensive knowledge of the birds on the reserve.

#4 Choose your own adventure 

When we get a bunch of birders, we’ll go out of our way to get you the best sightings. No need to follow the crowds to the game sightings; we’ll likely see them anyway. Rather, our guides will take you to the secret birding spots of the reserve so that you can maximise your winged sightings. 

If we have the availability, we’ll provide birding groups with their own game vehicle so that we can tailor the drive to the twitchers. 

#5 Birdlife abounds at the lodge

Our unfenced lodge is home to natural vegetation that attracts an array of birds. The hum and lilt of birdsong is always in the air around the lodge, and you may even have some of your best sightings while sitting on the deck enjoying a cup of tea or a sundowner! 

Birders, needless to say, you are more than welcome at Nambiti Plains Lodge!

What our guests have to say: 

“Our three-day stay at Nambiti Plains was a truly unique and enjoyable experience. No attention to detail was spared, and my husband and I got such special treatment; it felt like a second honeymoon! The food was scrumptious and very diverse – every meal was a delightful surprise. Although all staff members were extremely nice and friendly, the game drives were, of course, the highlight and Jason, our guide, the best! He shared his amazing knowledge of wildlife and especially birds with us in a really engaging way. It is unbelievable how he can spot animals and birds, even while he is telling a story! Thanks again, Nambiti Plains! We highly recommend you to family, friends and everyone else!” – TripAdvisor
