WESTERN CAPE BIRDING COMBO TOUR

Ten Day South Western Cape Birding Combo Tour

A combination of the Western Cape Birding Tours, with an optional one day extension for a pelagic trip.

Three days of birdwatching in Cape Town to fully explore the Peninsula birding localities (includes Inner South Coast loop and Peninsula Meander), followed by 2 days of birding in the West Coast, 2 days in the Tanqua Karoo, and finally 3 days in the Overberg region as far east as Grootvadersbosch Forest Reserve. The best time of year for this trip is Spring, which is undoubtedly the high season for all Cape endemics. In August / September between 250 and 300 bird species is an objective for this trip. An extension eastwards to include the Garden Route would ensure a few more species.

Northern Cape Birding Tour

The above tour can be extended northwards to include the Northern Cape as far as the Orange River or even the Kalahari (Kalaghadi) Transfrontier Park and Augrabies on the Orange River . Such a tour will embrace as many habitat types as possible and usually lasts from 15 to 18 days or longer. Targets include the dry country larks i.e. Sclater’s Lark, Red Lark, Karoo Long-billed Lark and Black-eared Sparrow-Lark amongst many more.
