BIrding Skukuza Golf

Unread post by handybirds » Wed Oct 19, 2016 8:16 am

I will be in Skukuza in about a week again. Is it possible to visit the golf course when you are not playing golf. We would like to take some photos and look for birds.
Couldn't´t find a proper answer to this question anywhere. Thanks a lot. Greetings from Germany . Brigitte Handy

You can visit the golf course even if you are not playing but always remember that the golfers will be annoyed if you move along or across the fairways while they are playing. Keep that in mind when you decide to do birding away from the clubhouse.

I used to be a member at Skukuza Golf Club and I remember signing indemnity forms before playing a round.

I am not sure that you will be able to traverse the course without signing some indemnity. Hippos, Elephants, Crocs, Leopard and Buffalo have all been encountered on the course.

I was there in September and you have to sign indemnity forms to go onto the golf course even as a non golfer.
They are available at the clubhouse.
