The Vaal Triangle area between Vereeniging and Vanderbijlpark stretches as far as Sasolburg, and is known by locals and tourists for its numerous bird species. The height of birding in the Vaal Triangle consist of birds like raptors specifically the Fish Eagle to Herons, Cranes and even Ducks around isolated ponds. Different species can be seen in both their natural and reformed habitats i.e. sanctuaries and bird parks. Abstract species such as the Fish Eagle is what makes birding in the Vaal Triangle so popular because these majestic birds can usually be seen catching its fish prey on the vast open Vaal Dam if you are lucky, however rarely seen to the cover of dense trees because they nest at the top of those trees.

So ultimately Birding in the Vaal Triangle can become educational for those wanting to learn more especially for kids, so the experience is all round and tour guides are very involved. These Nature reserves aim to educate travellers or bird watchers that if you want to experience the scenery and surroundings of a nature reserve or game reserve you visiting, it is important to actually be subtle in your movements, also pick the best spot to listen for the sounds of these vast species so as to easily locate them and see them properly in there in their natural habitat.

All these reformed habitats for these species have various facilities to make your birding experience be worthwhile and also learning material to keep you on the loop. In keeping in contrast with the surroundings, Hotels like Vaalnest Boutique Hotel have unique settings that allow for this, views are great to see raptors like the Fish Eagle catch its meal. Ultimately birding in the Vaal Triangle is more popular at the Vaal River and Vaal Dam Nature Reserve, the Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve and the nearby Marievale Bird Sanctuary in Southern Gauteng.
