Your Extraordinary Bird Itinerary is here
Around the Tendaba Lodge are a lot of opportunities for birding. You can walk to the lake near the south side of the Tendaba airstrip. You can go to the ‘Batelling’ Bush track where we can walk around. During a tree savanne we see a lot of birds as well. Even a bootsafari can be part of the trip. So a lot to choose.
