Panthera Pardus

Recommended Posts

If you are a Twitcher and have a day on hand in the Johannesburg area then look no further than the Marievale Bird Sanctuary, which is a Ramsar Weltland Site. You will get to see many waterbirds and also some grassland species. There are three hides at Marievale and the first one, The Hadeda Hide, is very productive.

 

You can read more about it in the link below
