The Emayani Beach Lodge is a birding extravaganza, offering a variety of habitats with many bird species, some unique to the area. A walk along the beach or a short boat trip to the offshore island of Maziwe will reward you with dozens of migrant and resident species of shorebird and wader as well as the fishing raptors and occasional seabirds. Leading from the lodge are many paths into the coastal forest with its rich variety of bird species. The lodge can arrange a kayak for a short paddle to the nearby mangrove with its unique species. Estuaries, sisal plantations and the higher-elevation Msumbugwe Forest are other attractive, easily accessed areas with their unique resident and migratory species.
