With the introduction of some new plants and flowers at Motebong, there have been some new arrivals. A noteable new arrival in the summer of 2015/16 has been the malacite sunbird.

Those bird watching enthusiasts who visit Ha Lejone and Motebong mountain lodge will be amazed by the variety to be found in the area. Of all that are spotted in the area, the Bearded Vulture or Lammergeyer is the most eagerly sought. One will always spot one of these if in the village and ha Lejone area for more than a day or two.
