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.
