Birding Tour South Africa: 8-day Western Cape October 2018



“The Fairest Cape” is an apt name for this part of the world, with the iconic Table Mountain, the picturesque Cape Peninsula, winelands in spectacular valleys between the Cape Fold Mountains, and arguably the world’s most beautiful beaches.
It’s amid this splendid scenery that one can find a staggering number of bird endemics, many of them completely restricted to the “fynbos” or “Cape flora” (the richest place on earth for plants, even richer than the Amazon!) and the nearby Karoo semi-desert across the rain shadow formed by the mountainous barrier.

Moreover, off Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope are the trawling grounds where some of the world’s best pelagic trips venture – we usually see at least four albatross species along with shearwaters, petrels, storm-petrels, African Penguin, Cape Gannet, and all the others.

Our 8-day tour allows adequate time to do this province justice, finding most of the important birds and hopefully exceeding 200 species.

This tour can be combined with our preceding Kruger National Park and Escarpment Birding Safari October 2018 tour and then with our following 18-day Subtropical South Africa Birding Adventure October 2018 for a 38-day South African adventure, and, following this, our Namibia, Okavango, and Victoria Falls 18-day Birding Adventure 2018 for a stunning Southern African mega tour.

What our clients say

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend at Ezemvelo. Great company, good weather and Dylan. What a good guide that young man is!!! He certainly knows his birds, and tries very hard to make everyone happy. He really goes out of his way. He’s such a gentleman, he’s going to go far. By the way four adults and one Blue Crane chick were seen on the weekend. Also a Black Stork, which Dylan was so pleased to see, and a couple of Honey Buzzards
