Kotu Creek


This area is the best known area for bird watching. The creek can easily be reached, as it lies in the neighborhood of some well known hotels such as Bakotu Hotel, Kombo Beach Hotel, Bongalo Beach Hotel and Badala Park Hotel.

The area comprises two different habitats. First, the rice fields which are next to the hotels. Walking around the area for just two hours will offer you the sight of up to 80 species like spoonbill, ibis, painted snipe, herons, terns, and many other sea birds migrating from Europe. Second, there is the area next to the rice fields, with sewage ponds and covered with mangrove forest, where you can watch many waders.
