Balule Birds

Balule Nature Reserve can be an exciting and rewarding destination for bird lovers. Steve’s Balule Bird list currently stands at about 250 species.   A striking variety of birds are found in Toro Yaka’s garden alone, including sunbirds, kingfishers, owls, francolins, cuckoo’s and many more.  The Region, with its diverse habitat of mountainous forest, riverine forest and bushveld savannah, hosts 80% of the country’s raptor species.   All of the birding “Big 6” (Kori Bustard, Ground Hornbill, Lappet faced Vulture, Pels Fishing Owl, Martial Eagle and Saddle billed Stork) have been recorded here. We hope to add more and more Photos to this page soon and we are looking forward to share our passion for “Life in the Air” with you…
