Lochinvar is an impressive bird sanctuary, with more than 420 species recorded in a small area. The area is particularly good for waterfowl and woodland birds, as well as raptors. There are no dangerous mammals in Lochinvar, apart from buffalo. Therefore, walking in the park is permitted and encouraged. The large Chunga lagoon and the surrounding floodplains is a great place to tick of a lot of species.

Best Time for Bird Watching

Lochinvar is a wonderful birding destination throughout the year. The best time for birders is when the migrant species are present and when many birds are in breeding plumage. This equates to the wet, summer months, from November to April. However, wildlife viewing is better in the dry months, from July to October.
