Bird List

We are situated approximately 10km from the Nylsvley Nature Reserve, regarded as one of the premier bird watching localities in the country.

Due to natural migration patterns, different bird species can be spotted at different times of the year.
At Badseloop Lodge we undertake quarterly bird counts, to keep an accurate and up to date list of all birds that can be easily spotted.

If you and your Bird Club would like to participate in our bird count program,
please send an email to rene@badseloop.co.za.
