Bird Watching at Roodeplaat

Roodeplaat Dam Nature reserve is rich in birdlife and over 250 species have been recorded here including some interesting species such as Osprey, Eurasian Reed-Warbler, Purple Heron, Black heron and Hammerkop.

There are 2 bird hides on the reserve. One at the picnic site and the other at the far end on the eastern side of the reserve.Both are excellent birding spots but the hide on the eastern side tends to have less traffic and is a great spot to spend a few hours in quiet tranquillity.
