Paarl Bird Sanctuary is a wonderful attraction situated in Paarl, about 60km from Cape Town, in the Western Cape province of South Africa. Set on 45 hectares of ponds, the sanctuary attracts a wide variety of waterfowl and over 140 different species of birds, making it an excellent site for birding.

The sanctuary was established in 1994, when the Drakenstein Municipality proclaimed part of the Water Treatment Works at Daljosaphat as a bird sanctuary. Today, visitors to the park can enjoy travelling along the gravel road which offers easy access to all areas of the sanctuary. There are numerous benches and hides set along the route, overlooking the open water.

Visitors can expect to see birds such the Protea Canary, Cape Weaver, African Purple Swamphen, Black Crake, Little Bittern, Three-banded Plover, Common Sandpiper, African Jacana, Green-backed Heron, American Purple Gallinule, Greater Painted Snipe, Squacco Heron, flamingo, ducks, and many more.
