Birding: Shakati is a very bird rich area. Use the reserve bird list and bird books. Borrow a pair of binoculars. Do your own birding trips or join our reserve manager, who is a keen birder. Join birders from universities who guide special trips or sit quietly on your veranda, watching singing and breeding birds in the lush garden. We support Birdlife South Africa and comply with the birder-friendly establishment concept catering for birders.
