Loads of African Sacred Ibis in the trees and flying around - space a bit of a problem on the trees! Lots of Egrets and Weaver birds. Lovely tranquil setting - very pretty. Big shaded viewing platform was fabulous in the 36 degree heat.

If you love birds, this is an experience. They are free to fly off and come back. Wonderful to see them in a free environment.

Very chilled and relaxing spot in Montaque. The view is not huge but beautiful. Birds nest hanging everywhere and love locks on the side walk.♡
