SOUTH AFRICAN WILDLIFE SAFARIS, BIRDING TOURS and PELAGIC TRIPS, CAPE TOWN and beyond:

Shy Albatross Avian Leisure specializes in tailor-made private safaris & birding tours in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia as well as botany tours, general nature tours and photographic tours. We cater for small groups wanting self-drive or guided tours. Our birding tours are run at your desired pace - intensive trips aim to cover as many habitat types as possible within the given time frame - expect 500 bird species in a three week guided trip. Our tailor-made wildlife safaris take you to the best bushveld areas in search of the 'Big Five' - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo & rhino.

A ‘must-do’ in Cape Town is a pelagic trip. In the words of American ornithologist in 1912: ‘I now belong to a higher cult of mortals, for I have seen the albatross!

CAPE TOWN BIRDING TOURS:
We’re based in Cape Town and have built up an excellent reputation for our birding tours out of Cape Town, ideal for visitors and business travellers who only have a few days available. Itineraries for our birding day tours in and around Cape Town depend on your specific interests relating to target birds and places you want to visit, as well as time of year and weather on the day. This approach ensures our Cape Town birding tours are optimally beneficial and enjoyable to you whether you are a 'twitcher' or a leisure birder.
