Barberspan Bird Sanctuary

Event information

The Barberspan Bird Sanctuary is a huge 2000 ha body of water located between Delareyville and Sannieshof. The reserve is a pioneer in ornithological research, and Bird Life South Africa has declared it an important national birding site.

It is also a RAMSAR Convention-accredited wetland of international importance for migratory birds and waterfowl, and is therefore well worth a visit.

Regarded as one of the largest waterfowl sanctuaries in Southern Africa, it’s a popular destination for birders. At least 365 species have been recorded, these include pelicans and flamingo, grebes, terns, herons, cranes, ibis and bitterns. All but one of the South African duck species have been recorded at the pans.

The sanctuary is popular with anglers and several angling competitions are held here. One is allowed to camp along the angling shoreline and there are walking trails.
