Our secondary bird ringing / bird banding site (BDI Bushveld) is located a five hour drive away from Johannesburg, and two hours away from Polokwane. This site is in the heart of the Bushveld, which is known for its wild landscapes, Game Reserves, and tranquility. Our site provides the perfect opportunity for ringing / banding African birds in the Savanna Biome, with the added benefits of being accessible from an international airport (OR Tambo International, airport code JNB), and being a perfect launching point for exploring the wild north of South Africa, including Kruger National Park, Mapungubwe National Park, the Soutpansberg Mountains, and baobab country. This site is also a great launching pad for trips into Botswana or Zimbabwe.
