Beachwood Mangroves bird walk
Enjoy a informative walk through natural mangrove forests led by a knowledgeable field guide. Regret no children under 12
The area is controlled by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and a hide and resource centre have been set up near the mangroves. Several short walks lead through the mangrove system with its delicately balanced ecology and a bridge connects this path to the sand dunes which is an equally fragile system, full of interesting plant and animal life. The valley behind the pioneer dune is one of the easiest places to find Square-tailed Nightjar, although it is difficult to see when roosting on the sand below a bush during the day. This walk will be taken by Joe Gillatt, who has been taking the bird walks for the last few years. There is no charge for visitors on the open morning, but there is a donation box available to show your support. Places are limited to 10 people so reserve your spot early to avoid disappointment. Regret no children under 12.
