Location: Ndumo Game Reserve lies in the north of South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal province, bordering Mozambique. The reserve, approximately 9 000 hectares in size, is well known for its extraordinary variety of bird life, boasting the highest bird count in South Africa with some 430 species.

Visitors to Ndumo can take guided game drives around Nyamithi Pan, an attractive pan surrounded by tall fever trees, where they will be rewarded with sightings of numerous wading birds and large numbers of crocodiles sunning themselves on the banks.

The reserve has a mix of vegetation, including acacia savannah, riverine bush, and sand forests, offering additional opportunities to view and enjoy the resident wildlife.
