Limpopo offers an excellent variety of birds due to its habitat diversity. Raptors, woodland and wetland species are all particularly well represented. Due to the lack of a road network, most of the wildlife viewing in the park is done on foot, which is excellent from a bird watching point of view. About 200 of the 500 species in total are migrants.
