On the S50, from Mopani to Shingwedzi, you will find a cluster of waterholes named Nshawu #1,2,3 and 5 along the Nshawu watercourse.

Although elephants are often seen, these areas are more renowned for its birding.
This first recorded sighting of a Cape Teal in Kruger was at one of these pans, when a flock of 14 were spotted.
Interesting waterbird sightings include Common Ringed Plover, Marsh sandpiper, Corn Crake and African Spoonbill. Pallid and Montagu's Harriers may be seen during the wet season.
