Amanzimtoti Bird Sanctuary is situated in the town of Amanzimtoti along the Kwa-Zulu Natal South Coast. It is a wonderful sanctuary for any bird lover, with as many as 150 species of birds to look out for.
The Sanctuary has a tea garden that overlooks a lake where there are many water birds you can not only watch and admire, but can feed too, as some are more than happy to come up to you and take food from your hands.
