South Africa celebrates National Parks Week between 18th and 22nd of September to put the spotlight on the amazing experience that visiting a park has to offer. 

KwaZulu-Natal is blessed with Umgeni Bird Park – a home to diverse and beautiful birds. 

The park is a tourist attraction located in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal and is not only home to amazing birds, but has a man-made waterfall and a pond that makes for great snaps.
