Marievale Bird Sanctuary 'a fun day out'

Article content

12 January 2010

Marievale Bird Sanctuary in the East Rand is a great place for people to visit while holidaying in South Africa, it has been claimed.

Writing for Suite 101, Yolande Pienaar noted that it is a popular attraction for those staying in the country due to its close proximity to both Johannesburg and Pretoria.

She stated: "Marievale Bird Sanctuary offers tourists a relaxing day away from the hustle and bustle of city life without having to drive more than 100 km to reach it."

Bird enthusiasts might be able to spot the white-breasted cormorant, the African darter, the red-knobbed coots or the slightly rarer African purple swamphen, Ms Pienaar added.

Readers were advised that opening hours to the reserve are 05:30 to 19:30 local time in the summer and 06:30 to 18:00 local time in the winter, with free entry.

The Independent recently highlighted South Africa as a leading destination for tourism in 2010, with the World Cup attracting interest from travellers across the globe.
