Birding

Bird watching or birding is one of the fastest growing past-times in the world and South Africa is home to 841 species of birds. There is a wide variety of habitat along the N3 Gateway Route and we are proud to have two Birding Routes as members; the Free State and Southern KZN Birding Routes. Birding is a great way to spend time with the family as it takes you to beautiful places and fosters an appreciation for the wild.

Inhabits the montaine habitat of the Drakensberg area that stretches  from the Eastern Cape through KZN to the eastern highlands of Mpumalangha. http://www.n3gateway.com/things-to-do/birding.htm
