Twee Rivieren now has a Bird Hide and waterhole, it opened on the 05 September 2019. The walk to the hide starts near Chalet no.1, then up a small dune to the entrance which is on the fence.  We have been told that it has lovely views from the hide and the waterhole is nicely laid out. We have not seen it yet but can not wait to find out for ourselves what it looks like. 

We love exploring the large fenced area which has big red sand dunes, we have often gone up just to see the view and have our sundowners......

There are a number of good waterholes near by, we like Samevloeiing because it has given us some lovely photographic opportunities.

The area is good for leopard, meerkats, lion, cheetah, gemsbok and wildebeest.
