Well maintained, and in good condition, lots of different birds, Bird food can be purchased at the restaurant, and the views over the small lake, while having a snack at the restaurant is beautiful.

I recommend every person who visits me from far, to go to the bird hide and just relax, watching the Blue Cranes or the Crested Cranes. And everyone always returns in awe, because of the Kingfishers visit! Add the light playing on the water, wonderful photo opportunities, peace, quiet and a safe environment...

Pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed the afternoon out. Very impressed with the bird hide. We saw the Rose-ringed Parakeet, a new addition to our list. We recommend that you take your camera along. A good place for a short enjoyable bird-watching outing.

In between safaris, I headed for the bird sanctuary to check out some of the neighborhood birds. I was pleasantly surprised, about 25 species, some I hadn't seen. plus a nice restaurant. A neat bird hide, a wetlands, nice area.

I love it the most when we book the group table at the viewpoint, just before you enter the building to your right. It's exclusive, you have a great spot, and it's most relaxing. Service can be slow because you're not INside the restaurant itself, but now that you know, you can allow for a few minutes extra! :-) Have your camera ready to take some lovely pictures of our endangered Blue Crane birds.
