Duration: 1

Tour Start: Johannesburg

Tour End: Johannesburg

Birds include greater Kalahari specials such as Southern Pied BabblerAshy TitCrimson-breasted ShrikeShaft-tailed WhydahViolet-eared Waxbill, and Barred Wren-Warbler. Other common birds we’ll probably find are White-browed Sparrow-WeaverSouthern Yellow-billed Hornbill and two other hornbill species, Burchell’s Glossy Starling, and several beautiful bee-eater and roller species.

After lunch (unless you only want to do a half-day trip), we can travel southwards to visit diverse areas of woodland, wetland, and rocky outcrop. We can visit the Seringveld Conservancy, where Kurrichane ThrushStriped Kingfisher, and Southern Black Flycatcher are likely. Local specials here include Pallid FlycatcherGreen-capped Eremomela, and Tinkling Cisticola.

The guide for day trips is allocated only after you have booked, as all of them are run as private trips. But we always use the country’s top birding guides.

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,

James E. Reveley, DDS, Texas
