The Cape Floral Kingdom is the smallest on the planet and yet has more plant species than any other! It’s even more species-rich for plants per unit area than the Amazon! The array of unique plants is, simply, spectacular. Come join us as we scour through rare succulents and proteas across the Cape, from the Karoo in bloom to the fynbos to Namaqualand. Several of us on the Birding Ecotours from the Cape have studied Botany and/or live in Cape Town, so you’re in qualified hands! Please contact us.
In the fall of 2011 my wife and I did a 28 day bird watching tour of South Africa with Birding Ecotours. Birding Ecotours was recommended by our Canadian agent, Tours of Exploration. Both of our driver/guides were excellent and our group of 5 saw well over 500 species of birds and over 60 species of animals as well as a large number of amazing endemic plants. The tours were well planned and run and came off without a hitch. The guides were very patient and accommodating and allowed us to change the schedule when we were in areas of great interest. Along with showing us the amazing natural history of South Africa our guides also explained the cultural history which made the trip special. We hope that we will have the opportunity to will travel with Birding Ecotours again in the near future.
