Bird Watching

If you have a keen interest in birds and nature, then Lake Chahafi is the place to be!

A wide range of birds can be spotted on and around the lake, such as the African Jacana, Lesser Jacana, Swamp Warbler, Black Crake, Common Moorhen, Malachite Kingfisher, Pied Kingfisher, Hammerkop, Great Crowned Crane, grebes, Egyptian Goose, Yellow billed duck, Black Headed Weaver (also known as Dark Capped Weaver).

Hire a guided canoe from Lake Chahafi Resort to get maximum coverage of the area and combine the sights from the water with a walk across the land around.

Be sure to check out the folder of recently spotted birds kept at the Resort before you go – and see if you can add to the list!
