Manyoni Private Game Reserve Birding Safari (3-4 hours)

  • About 3 hours


Some come to experience the Big 5, and leave with an everlasting appreciation of the magnificent birdlife. Mavela is renowned for its exceptional birding opportunities, with over 400 species recorded on the reserve. The diversity of habitats found on the Manyoni reserve invite you to go searching for all sorts of beautiful and elusive bird species. From riverine thickets to grassy plains, the bush provides an abundance of birdlife. The Stevens family are avid birdwatchers and ensure that guests are given a glimpse into this fascinating hobby. The guides at Mavela are bird specialists, and will be able to identify many of the birds by their call alone. They love a challenge, and if you wish to come searching for a specific bird, we will search high and low to get the sighting you wish.

What a great experience we had. Dan, Ashleigh and Calvin thank you for making our stay fantastic. The staff were incredible. The food was outstanding. When you sat on the viewing deck you could feel and see the beauty and tranquility of the bush and animals. I would love to go back in the near future. Calvin was a great guide and shared his knowledge of the birds and animals.
