Directions to Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary

The Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary offers visitors a great opportunity to see some of the country's more common birds up close. The sanctuary is in Muckleneuk, Pretoria, about 40km from Sandton, and it's a great place for a Sunday afternoon family outing, or simply for a peaceful walk outside the hustle of the city.

Around 170 species have been recorded at this location, and birders can see as many as 40 species in a short morning visit. The main attraction is the dam where you'll find an excellent hide, but there are also woodland patches and exotic trees in the sanctuary on site. If you're feeling peckish, the Blue Crane restaurant offers a selection of tasty meals, and the adjacent trim and recreational park are also worth a visit.

Some of the more interesting birds that you might be able to spot include Little Bittern or Green-backed Heron, while the Sasol Hadeda Hide offers excellent views of the water-birds found there. In summer, you will also see the delightful sight of colonies of Southern Masked-Weaver, Thick-billed Weaver and Southern Red Bishop breeding in front of the hide.
