Join us in early late March for a weekend away at the Nylsvley birding Ramsar site for a weekend of birding for novice and enthusiast.  We’re hoping for more water by the time we get there.

Fri, 20th March:

Arrive at Nysvley and setup camp, followed by a get together and braai around the campfire to get to know one another.

Sat, 21st March:

We’ll set off at 7am to explore the main reserve and hides, returning for a brunch before the heat of the day kicks in. Later in the day we’ll head for Vogelfontein to see if we can find some water birds. Vogelfontein’s birdlife is very dependent on water levels and rainfall. We’ll monitor the situation. Before sunset we’ll head for a walk along the Nylrivier to enjoy the quiet of the evening and the sunset, before returning to camp for a time around the campfire and catch-up on stories of recent travels.

Sun, 22nd March:

Either setout early for another attempt at sightings you may wish to find, or relax in camp and have a late breakfast and enjoy some of the campsite birds or take a leisurely drive through the reserve.  Some may wish to explore other areas of the reserve on foot. There’s no rush to pack up camp and head home.

Booking are essential, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
