    Ngala is the only private game reserve in the legendary Kruger National Park, one of the richest and most strategically important wildlife areas in Africa. The impressive dry riverbed of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve in South Africa features islands of reeds, a bird-watcher's paradise. Colourful birds to look out for are the Southern Yellowbilled Hornbill and the Redbilled Hornbill. With their large, colourful bills and confiding nature, Hornbills are among the most conspicuous birds in African savannahs.
