Location: Situated in the northern part of South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal province, Ndumo Game Reserve covers an area of about 9 000 hectares.
It is renowned for its outstanding bird life -- a result of geographic location that attracts birds from regions to the north and south -- and boasts the
the highest bird count in South Africa with some 430 species.
Those visiting Ndumo can enjoy interesting wildlife sightings at a number of attractive pans fringed with pale yellow-green fever trees and reedbeds,
while the surrounding acacia savannah, riverine bush and sand forests provide additional opportunities to view a variety of wildlife.
