Bird-watching enthusiasts are flocking to
Malipati, 250km of Chiredzi south, CAJ News Africa can reveal.

Here they see various types of birds at Manjinji Birds Sanctuary, which
is fast becoming a major tourism draw card.

The bird-keeping project was mooted in 2005 when Zimbabwe, South Africa
and Mozambique agreed on the establishment of Great Limpopo Trans
frontier Park (GLTP).

“Malipati area is endowed with various doves, nest eagles, vultures and
stock birds, among other bird species that tourists come to see,” said
Auspicious Ndlovu, the founder of the project in an interview with CAJ
News Africa.

These bird enthusiasts mainly come from Namibia, Mozambique, Angola and
South Africa.

He added the project was growing fast, thanks to stakeholders who
supported the programmes.

These are the Malipati Development Trust, Gonarezhou Conservation
Technology,  Sustainable Agriculture Technology, Wildlife In Wildlife
Development (SAT WILD) and the Chiredzi Rural District Council.

Boreholes are being drilled at Bosman site to cater for the needs of the
birds.

“So far two are completed to supply water for the birds in an area named
Bosman site," said  Ndlovu.

The project is being run through a community owned natural resources
management team.
