With some good rains you will find hundreds of thousands of Lesser Flamingos, along with Greater Flamingos, Chestnut-banded Plovers, Great White and Pink-backed Pelicans, and a host of other waterbirds converge on the nutrient-rich waters of the pans. There is camping near the entrance of the park.

It is possible to reach the Bird Sanctuary in a 2x4 in the dry season but if it is rainy season you can only access it with a 4x4 vehicle, and they often get stuck as well. If you don't have a 4x4 book through Nata Lodge to go with their game viewing vehicle to visit the pans.
At the sanctuary they only accept cash.
A good camping option is the Nata Lodge, 9km North.
