Zaagkuilsdrift Bird Sanctuary and Lodge was founded in 2011 but the idea, of a safe haven where birds can breed freely and safely, was born much earlier to Mr Sooi Verheem who has a great interest and passion for birds. 

The entire area is known as one of the best birding areas in Limpopo and Crake road makes for excellent birding.   Zaagkuilsdrift Bird Sanctuary and Lodge is also part of the Southern Ground-Hornbill and Wattle Crane Recovery Programme.

In addition to the beautiful birds, we offer luxurious accommodation to those who does not want to leave. Work on the chalets and guesthouse are completed and we can now proudly offer fully catered accommodation. We are also fully licensed so you can just come, sit back and relax! We also have a unit available which is wheel chair friendly.

There are also numerous activities to keep everyone busy, a huge swimming pool to cool off after a day in the bush. We also offer game drives, mountain biking, jungle gym, and walks through nature.
