South Africa: Johannesburg / Pretoria
In Johannesburg, we recommend Suikerbosrand/Marievale (south of Johannesburg) if you only have one day available. If you have a second day, we suggest Zaagkuilsdrif and environs (north of Pretoria), an area which has Kalahari-type birds. The Roodepoort Botanic Gardens provides an excellent half day around Johannesburg.

What our clients say
I would like to thank the Birding Ecotours Company for all the careful attention they gave to our needs in the Capetown Area. They helped us have a wonderful time in Capetown, as we wanted to do some birding as well as see the Wine Country. The Bird Guide they supplied us with was Mr. Mark Harrington, who has a wonderful knowledge of the area and its Flora and Fauna. Mark took us to areas we would have never known of on our own, and found a great many birds for us, as well as several good spots to eat. His personality is exceptional, and his company was a real pleasure. I can highly recommend his services. We have birded in many countries, and meeting Mark was one of the highlights of our trip. Very Truly Yours,
