Sandton is a vibrant, glamorous part of Johannesburg, in the Gauteng Province of South Africa, and is known for its constant hum. It is also the address of the magnificent Melrose Wild Bird Sanctuary, in which well over 120 species of birds live within their natural habitat. Touring this facility is a real treat for the whole family, and allows visitors to learn more about these magnificent animals within tranquil, scenic surroundings.

The bird hide invites guests to sit on the banks of the dam, unhindered and unseen by the birds as they carry on their daily routine for the visitors to watch. This is not only a prime opportunity to experience the natural antics of the birds, but also promises to be a welcome retreat from the ‘real world’.

Those coming to see the birds should set aside a full day. Bring along picnic baskets or snacks, and immerse yourself in the tranquillity of this paradise, which is secluded in the heart of one of Africa’s busiest and most commercial epicentres. Malls, office blocks, major motorways, medical facilities, markets and other tourist attractions abound.
