South Africa is synonymous with wildlife and nature. Here, you can not only find the Big Five, but so much more – a myriad of species amid dramatic, unspoilt landscapes.
For the birder it is a truly inspiring and wonderful destination with over 900 species, ranging from the familiar – Swallows, Robins and Thrushes – to the lesser known, such as Turacos, Penguins and Sunbirds .
It could take a lifetime to spot all South Africa’s birds! But even on our relatively short birding visit, you’ll still be able to tick off plenty while bird-watching.
Our habitats include wetlands, desert, riverine bush and woodland – and then of course there’s the sea, take a look at our 6 day optional extension for an unforgettable pelagic opportunity and experience.
Birding in South Africa is amazing – whether you're on safari, cruising round the Cape Winelands, hiking in the Drakensberg or sunning yourself by the sea, you will never be far away from bird-watching opportunities.
There are some great birding routes all over South Africa; some take just a few hours, others a day or more. Coming on tour with us means you are in good hands with local information on the best routes and times to visit. Why not join us on this marvellous adventure due to begin during November 2014?
