Birding Tour South Africa: 12-day Western Cape February 2019



We often get feedback that the accommodation on this ‘Birding Tour South Africa’ adventure is great! Indeed, South Africa is one of the best value destinations on the entire continent. The excellent infrastructure, superb accommodation, great food, wonderful South African hospitality, spectacular and varied scenery, and the presence of Africa’s big and small mammals makes it one of the most pleasant countries in the world to bird in.

We begin this Birding Tour South Africa excursion in one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Cape Town, looking for a host of avian endemics found nowhere else but in the Cape Floral Kingdom (the richest place on earth for plants), and also doing a pelagic trip. Cape pelagics are among the best in the world. We then head northwards from Cape Town up the west coast, and then across the beautiful and rugged Cederberg range into the Karoo, another one of Africa’s greatest endemic hotspots. We then visit the Agulhas Plains, which are the stronghold of South Africa’s national bird, the Blue Crane, and also are inhabited by localized endemics such as the Agulhas Long-billed Lark. We then continue to the picturesque Garden Route, where we have time to sample some of the birds more typical of Eastern South Africa, including Knysna Turaco, Knysna Woodpecker, Half-collared Kingfisher, and a host of others.

All in all, our 12-day featured Cape tour in February this year is full of localized endemics, spectacular scenery, and so much more. This is where Birding Ecotours started as a company in 2002, and nowhere else do we have as much experience as in the Cape.

This Birding Tour South Africa adventure can be combined with our Subtropical South Africa 18-day Birding Adventure March 2019 tour.

What our clients say

As for Mark’s guiding abilities I thought he was superb leader! Mark is thoroughly familiar with the Western Cape South Africa area, all of its birds, and all of it mammals (even the whales we saw from a couple of sites)! Mark is fluent in both English and Afrikaans. He knew all the owners of the lodges we stayed in. He knew all the birding sites throughout the area from national parks, to city gardens, to mountain passes, to desert scrub to sewage ponds! With one exception (the elusive Ground Woodpecker) Mark’s guiding led us to see all the birds billed in our trip itinerary. He also knew where there were some really good restaurants! He was a big help to some of our party that stayed some extra time in Cape Town. I would certainly take another tour with Mark.
