Albasini Dam – Nandoni Dam
About the Birding
Set on the south-eastern side of Thohoyandou town, the Nandoni Dam is built on the Luvuvhu River. The site features a mix of open water, reeds, and small areas covered in water lilies. A birding walk around the dam is usually productive and should deliver Lesser Moorhen (abundant in summer), chances for the African Pygmy Goose, Little Grebe, White-backed Duck, Western Cattle and Little Egrets, African Jacana, and African Fish Eagle.
About the Birding Site
The Soutpansberg Birding Route is situated in the very northernmost part of the Limpopo Province including the northern parts of Kruger National Park, Mapungubwe National Park, Venda and the Soutpansberg Mountain range. This is arguably one of the most diverse Birding Routes in all of South Africa, boasting a list well in excess of 540 bird species. Many of these species are residents of the region, implying that there is a year-round abundance of birds to see. However, the resident assemblage of species is supplemented by the mass influx of a high diversity of migrant species in the summer months.
