Albasini Dam – Levubu Post Office tree
About the Birding
The Levubu Post Office is centrally located within the town of Levubu and boasts a large curb side Mobola Plum Tree. When in fruit (July-December), this tree attracts small numbers of the Brown-necked (Grey-headed) Parrot and this is perhaps the most reliable site in the country to see this species. The surrounding areas support the sought-after Blue-spotted Wood Dove, Magpie Mannikin, and Holub’s Golden Weaver.
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.
