With more than 240 bird species recorded, Amakhala is a great birding destination. There are game drives, walking safaris and river cruises with knowledgeable guides. Birding is, however, not the focus of these shared activities and it might be worth booking private game drives to avoid disappointment if birding is a priority. Migratory birds are present from November to April.
