We so enjoyed the Rondevlei Nature Reserve earlier in our trip to Cape Town we decided to return. We were greeted by the warden who remembered us from our last trip. He suggested that we might also like to visit the Sewerage Works (!) and offered to draw up a map for us whilst we were visiting the reserve.
We didn’t see as much at Rondervlei this time but it was still a very worthwhile visit. However, we couldn’t resist a trip to the sewerage works and followed the warden’s excellent map. This trip was beyond our wildest dreams. Once we had signed in to the park we followed a road for about 4 kms and arrived at the sewerage works (a little smelly as we were warned). From there we followed gravel tracks in our car for kilometre after kilometre and saw the most amazing collection of birds without ever getting out of the car. The birds didn’t seem affected by us and we could view the birds really close up.
I’ll post (some of) my photos now and try to identify later.
