Of this number, 365 species were identified in the reserve itself. The reserve provides habitat to 37 Red-Data species, hence its significance as a RAMSAR site. Five modern bird-hides are located in the reserve.
The prolific bird-life of the area makes it a great attraction for bird-lovers, researchers and tourists alike. It is not only the large numbers and many species of birds found in the reserve that attract tourists for a picnic or weekend, but also the six hundred plant species.
There is a limited network of dirt roads for game-viewing, extensive walking and hiking, and mountain biking.
In addition there are campsites for thirty people and picnic facilities. An old farmhouse is used for research purposes and the reserve also has a lecture hall, which is ideal for conferences/ meetings.
