is well known for its exceptional bird life, boasting the highest bird count in South Africa with about 430 species.
Visitors to Ndumo have the opportunity of taking a guided game drive around Nyamithi Pan, an attractive lake fringed with pale fever trees and reedbeds where they will be

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.
