In the establishment of Montusi Mountain Lodge, we wanted to attract as much endemic birdlife to the area as possible.

We began by introducing as many indigenous plants as possible and the gardens have since flourished with different species of bird such as sunbirds, sugarbirds, widows and wydahs. So avid birders can start their twitching right from their verandas! 

A short stroll to the dams, or through the horse paddock expands the birding experience to include kingfishers, bald ibis, lapwings and on occasion the endangered ground hornbill.
