Zaagkuilsdrift is another unknown gem hiding north of Pretoria.Stefaan Bouwer, Medical Doctor
It is about 40 minutes north of Pretoria and 70 minutes from Johannesburg.
It must rank as one of the best birding sites in South Africa, and Zaagkullsdrift lodge is in the middle of this area.
A luxurious lodge nestling amongst the birdlife offers the visitors everything you want for a weekend breakaway.
The food is out of this world, and the owners are really accommodating to adapt to let the birders get out and catch the birdlife during the ‘Golden Hours’
There is also a wonderful bird rehabilitation center with guided tours, and a bird hide that is on the site.
Bungalows are clean and spacious, all opening up onto a center grass space, so any young kids can play around within view.
Once you have been there you want to go back, for longer.
