I live near the Bird Sanctuary and often pass it. I feel quite sad when I do! It is in a terrible state I think. Unkempt, neglected in my opinion and very seldom do I see the buck that reside there. Bird life ok, not amazing. I did complain about the condition of the park and was told that it was not bad and that there were always 6 staff working there. I have never seen more than 1 or 2 and often none! The water in the main dam is clogged with weeds or whatever and I just feel sorry for the buck!
Used to be so lovely, but, sadly, not anymore. Needs attention!!

The park is adjacent to the Blue Crane restaurant and worth a visit if you love birds. Many species resident at the park, including Blue Cranes, which are quite tame. Spend time in the bird watching hide as well when there.

If you visit this place you either have the fortunate moment with plenty of birds around or you may find it dull because the birds might not like you and disappear.

Right in the middle of Brooklyn you can escape to the bush. There is a couple of blesbuck and springbuck and a little hide to watch water birds.

I read a lot about this bird sanctuary and decided to visit it. What a disappointment it turned out to be. There is really nothing to see but a few ducks in the water. I really don't have anything positive to say about it.

Well maintained, and in good condition, lots of different birds, Bird food can be purchased at the restaurant, and the views over the small lake, while having a snack at the restaurant is beautiful.

I recommend every person who visits me from far, to go to the bird hide and just relax, watching the Blue Cranes or the Crested Cranes. And everyone always returns in awe, because of the Kingfishers visit! Add the light playing on the water, wonderful photo opportunities, peace, quiet and a safe environment...

Pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed the afternoon out. Very impressed with the bird hide. We saw the Rose-ringed Parakeet, a new addition to our list. We recommend that you take your camera along. A good place for a short enjoyable bird-watching outing.

In between safaris, I headed for the bird sanctuary to check out some of the neighborhood birds. I was pleasantly surprised, about 25 species, some I hadn't seen. plus a nice restaurant. A neat bird hide, a wetlands, nice area.

I love it the most when we book the group table at the viewpoint, just before you enter the building to your right. It's exclusive, you have a great spot, and it's most relaxing. Service can be slow because you're not INside the restaurant itself, but now that you know, you can allow for a few minutes extra! :-) Have your camera ready to take some lovely pictures of our endangered Blue Crane birds.
