Mammal and Birding Tour South Africa: Drakensberg and Zululand 2018



KwaZulu-Natal is one of the richest places for mammals and birds in South Africa. On this ‘Birding Tour South Africa’ adventure we first sample the impressive Drakensberg, which has lots of bird endemics and a lot of other attractions, before spending most of our time in mega-diverse Zululand, a true African wildlife paradise.

This Birding Tour South Africa experience can be combined with our Kalahari Mammal and Birding Extravaganza, with optional 6-day Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park pre-trip 2018 (March 28 or April 2 – April 9 2018). You can join either tour independently, but we strongly recommend doing both. Doing both tours means you will sample two African habitats that are absolutely poles apart. See you at Birding Tour South Africa!

What our clients say

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.
