Bird Valley Estate is nestled in a SAPPI forest.  This is an ever-so-clever best kept Midland's secret!!!

A little more inland-22kms away from PMB and beyond the well acknowledged Karkloof Spa & Safari resort you will encounter #BirdValley.

It is a small residential area with 30 large plots around the water’s edge – some with water- skiing rights. So far only 10 plots have been developed. Bird Valley Estate is at Satellite Dam just north of Albert Falls in the Midlands, KZN. Satellite Dam is about 1.5kms in length and on average about 250 metres wide. Most of this is wetlands. 

The estate is surrounded by pine forest. The habitat on the estate includes predominantly grasslands and wetlands. The wetlands are no ordinary wetlands – they are huge! The channel through the wetlands is 7 kilometers from one end to the other.

And finally on a flat-bottomed boat along the waterways through the wetland area. Most of our time was spent on the water going through the channel so most of our birding was focused on water birds.

View from the bird hide showing the extent of the wetland area – to the base of the Karkloof Hills in the distance.

Bird and natures lovers will rejoice at this picturesque paradise. Many of the birds were in breeding pairs. The Bird Valley Estate’s Bird List is now 115 different bird species .

Some of the specials we saw included: At least 3 pairs of African Pygmy-Geese; White-backed Ducks; African Rail; African Black Ducks; African Marsh-Harrier; numerous Red-backed Mannikins; African Purple Swamp hen; Little Bittern and 3 Grey Crowned Cranes.
