BIRD-WATCHERS DELIGHT TOUR

The Cape of Good Hope and surrounding environs, within a radius of 100 Km of Cape Town City Centre, offers five main bird habitats with more than 200 bird species found here. The tour itinerary will be determined relative to the time of year and the particular species of birds you wish to observe.

The 3 main areas we visit are situated in the Cape Coastal Fynbos and Cape Flats Wetlands. The tour starts in Cape Town, heading out into the Southern Suburbs. Our first point of call is the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, where we get the classic opportunity to enjoy both the beauty of the Garden and the abundant birdlife that this Garden attracts.

We then continue on to the Rondevlei Bird Sanctuary and Nature Reserve. Here, if Mother Nature permits, we may be fortunate to spot between 40 to 70 different Wetland Bird species as well as elusive mammals such as small antelope, the huge hippo and even the very shy Cape clawless otter if we are fortunate. This wetland Reserve boasts a fascinating selection of static bird displays, a freshwater Aquarium, a comfortable walk and some excellent bird hides & observation towers.

Following an optional lunch en route, we head for the Koeberg Power Station Nature Reserve on the West Coast. This amazing little Nature Reserve, although lying in the lee of a Nuclear Power Station, is host to a wide diversity of birdlife, ranging from weavers, raptors to a variety of sea birds. To fully enjoy the birdlife in this Reserve, you will need to be prepared to hike a 4 km trail, taking us through the unique ecosystems represented by Coastal Wetlands and Fynbos.

This tour is a must for anyone passionate about birds and wants to extend their Bird Spotting Lists to include specimens unique to this area!
