Nylsvlei tends to be a reliable area for this species but you need to find suitabel habitat for the bird.
A good stakeout is as follows:

Take the N1 towards Pietersberg/Polokwane.
Take the Pienaar's river/Rust Der Winter off ramp and turn left. At the T-junction, turn right.
Continue through Bela Bela (Warmbaths) and continue onto Modimolle. Cary on along the R101 past modimolle towards Mookgopong (Potgietersrus) and when you get to a bigish interchange where the dual carrige way starts, turn left onto the continuation of the R101. after a while you will see s sign to Nylsvlei. Turn right here. After a while you will see a sign to the left saying Vogelfontein. Turn here. The next road turns right towards Vogelfontein.
Turn right here. As you turn the corner, stop. The field on your left is very thick with Accaia trees. This area is very good for Barred Wren-warbler.

Good Luck.
Doug.

Borakalalo Reserve (near Brits in the North West) is also a great area for this species, especially near the bridge overlying the river as it leaves the dam wall.

The weekend before last this species was very vocal on the Zaagkuildrift road in acacia woodland. The call is distinctive and if known you will locate this species easily.

We had lovely close up views of it on Saturday 1.4km north before Crake Road on the Zaagkuilroad.
