If you are a bird lover then you will thoroughly enjoy a visit to the Mooi River at Giants Castle Game Reserve. With over 140 species to be seen, this is an ideal place to view some magnificent sights.
There are several endangered species here too and the chances of spotting one are very high. Near Giants Castle Game Reserve, the South African Crane Foundation centre was built in order to study and breed these magnificent creatures.
Some of the birds you will see on your visit include the Blue Crane, Crowned Crane, Wattled Crane, Secretary Bird, Southern Bald Ibis, Cape Vulture, Black Eagle and the Bearded Vulture. The Bald Ibis has made a home amongst the cliffs where it nests near the Mooi River Falls, while the Secretary Bird can be seen walking through the grassland areas.
There are hides dotted around the Reserve offering you the best opportunity of watching these incredible birds in their natural environment.
