Cosy Cottages is also a Birder Friendly Establishment officially recognised by BirdLife South Africa. With the most important birding spots in the area, like the world-renowned OPM Prozesky Bird Sanctuary literally on our doorstep, Cosy Cottages organises customised birding trips on a daily basis.

Potchefstroom offers, apart from birding, several other nature experiences. The Highveld National Park, as well as the established Buffelsvlei Wild Animal Park, is about 12km from Cosy Cottages. About 20km from us lies the Vredefort Dome, created 2000 million years ago by a giant meteorite which struck the earth creating a crater 80km in diameter and forcing the surrounding landscape into a dome-like feature. This is the largest and oldest meteorite impact site on earth and is soon to be nominated for World Heritage status.

We offer transport to and from Johannesburg Airport on request. Contact us for quotes on tailor-made birding and/or nature trips in addition to your stay.
