2015-07-15 06:00

THE South African National Parks (SANParks) honorary rangers in the Free State region will in February 2016 present their tenth annual Golden Gate Birding Day in the Golden Gate Highlands National Park.

This event, which will be held from 12 to 14 February 2016, raises funds for SANParks conservation projects within the park.

The park’s 4x4 route will also be accessible and participants will have the opportunity to experience the area known as the “Little Serengeti” with an abundance of animals; this part of the park is not open to the public.

The birding weekend will begin with a function on the Friday evening, followed by birding activities on the Saturday. Guests are invited to a dinner on the Saturday night.

Ulrich Oberpreiler, Jaco Buys and Rick Nuttal will be guest speakers.

Discount rates apply to accommodation booked before 27 November. The deadline for registration is 15 January 2016.
