Ta Shebube Polentswa
Ta Shebube Polentswa is located some 220km north of Two Rivers along the Nossob River Valley, and is nestled amongst trees and shrubs on top of a valley with far reaching views of the Polentswa Pan, famous for its magnificent sunsets and bird-watching.
The area around Polentswa Pan is dominated by vast flat and open tree savanna, interspersed by expansive grassy plains, large vegetated pans and smaller scattered salt pans and the characteristic fossil Nossob River which with its many waterholes attracts large numbers of game and birds. The area is malaria free. The pan is known as a bird watchers’ paradise, especially if interested in birds of prey. The Nossob riverbed is rated as one of the best places in Southern Africa to view raptors (martial eagles, kites, pygmy falcons) particularly during the summer months, when they move through the Park.
