WHY NOT AN EXCLUSIVE BIRDING SAFARI WITH MGS ?
South Africa has an impressive diversity of more than 850 species of bird and also boasts the most regionally endemic bird species of any African country.Our very own Mpumalanga province with it's incredible diversity of altitudes and habitats makes it an awesome birding area with over 500 species recorded in the province.
A combination of our own Gold Valley reserve ,nearby Kruger National Park ,surrounding private reserves ,the Drakensberg Mountains ,Kaapsehoop and the wet/grass lands of the Wakkerstoom area will provide the opportunity of seeing and photographing many of these species.
