This area is most famous for its raptor populations – Martial Eagles, Secretary Birds, Bateleurs and a whole host of little Raptors comprise the main feature of this area. There are amazing water birds to be found along the Khwai River and as this river is fairly open, it makes for easy birding. A cultural visit to a local village can also be arranged from the lodge, as well as guided safari walks along the Khwai River by one of the experienced team of guides.
