Barberspan Bird Sanctuary is regarded as one of the largest waterfowl sanctuaries in Southern Africa. With a vast 2000 hectare body of water that is RAMSAR Convention accredited, indicating its international importance for migratory birds and waterfowl. This sanctuary lies on the outskirts of Delareyville, close to Vryburg on the N14 highway and roughly three hours’ drive from Johannesburg.
Barberspan is the largest of a series of pans that lie in the fossil bed of the Harts River. The pan, which measures roughly 600 m wide and 1 550 m in length, lies within the Barberspan Bird Sanctuary. More than 12 000 birds and over 365 bird species have been recorded here - the sheer numbers and diversity mean that the sanctuary is extremely popular with birders. It is home to flamingos, pelicans, grebes, terns, herons, cranes, ibis and bitterns, and all but one of the South African duck species, among others.
Barberspan Bird Sanctuary is popular with anglers and several regional and national angling competitions are held here. One is allowed to camp along the angling shoreline and there are also walking trails. The Barberspan Bird Sanctuary is open daily from 06h00 to 18h00 and is well sign-posted from the N14 which links the small towns of Delareyville and Sannieshof.
