Introduction:

This 11-day endemic birds in the Western Cape tour will lead you along the Cape south coast from through the glorious Overberg region and along the spectacular Garden Route to Wilderness in the east. We will also explore the Kogelberg mountains and the region from Hermanus to Gansbaai. We then proceed through the Agulhas Plains to De Hoop, before heading to the flourishing coastal forests and lakes around Wilderness. We then head through several spectacular mountain passes into the Small and Great Karoo hinterland as we search for the semi-arid species in and around Karoo National Park and the even more barren and succulent Tankwa Karoo National Park. Next, we head further west through the Cederberg to the colder west coast Atlantic Ocean waters and fynbos habitats of West Coast National Park. Lastly, we direct southwards back to Cape Town and overlook False Bay from Simon’s Town from which we hope to experience its prolific pelagic birding numbers off Cape Point. The tour focuses on several different geographic areas and varied and special habitats that host a wide range of endemic and near-endemic species.

We set a sightings goal of 270+ bird species in the summer months and 230+ bird species in winter, many of them resident endemics and specials. On the mammal front, we hope to see upwards of 45 species, with an array of reptiles, amphibians and butterflies also to be found amongst the many delightful wildflowers.

Top 30 birds: Cape Rockjumper, Cape Sugarbird, Fynbos Buttonquail, Orange-breasted Sunbird, Protea Canary, Cape Eagle Owl, Forest Buzzard, Knysna Woodpecker, Ground Woodpecker, Knysna Turaco, African Penguin, Crowned Cormorant, Bank Cormorant, Damara Tern, Agulhas Long-billed Lark, Cape Long-billed Lark, Cape Clapper Lark, Namaqua Sandgrouse, Ludwig’s Bustard, Southern Black Korhaan, Karoo Korhaan, Victorin's Warbler, Namaqua Warbler, Cinnamon-breasted Warbler, Rufous-eared Warbler, Fairy Flycatcher, Karoo Eremomela, Tractrac Chat, Grey Tit and Southern Tchagra.
