Feeding time at Ashcrofts Lake House

An absolute haven for bird lovers, one can sit for hours in Ashcrofts’ lush garden. Family friends & guests just love to feed their left-over toast to the locals!  Marina da Gama offers a secluded and safe environment for various birds. Seen below are some of our feathery friends.

The more exotic birds are plentiful too. Seen here is our prize Blue Crane – South Africa’s National bird.  We seem to be getting favour from the Blue Crane as I frequently spot it.
