South Africa Adventure With Birdwatching Trips 2018

Leopard watched from our breakfast table in Kruger National Park.

We have just returned from an amazing two week Birdwatching Trips tour in South Africa, fair to say it way exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed over 370 of birds and a staggering 65 species of mammal – we don’t know of any other two week tours that have seen so many mammals as this! But it was the amazing encounters with the birds and mammals that will live long in the memory, not the numbers. Watching an aardvark foraging in the Kalahari desert, black-footed cats creeping through the grass, Swallow-tailed Bee-eater in the early morning sun all in the first few hours! The Karoo provided wonderful scenery and more amazing mammals and birds. Black Eagles against towering cliffs, Ground Woodpeckers displaying just feet away, a pair of Karoo Korhaans displaying and “singing” as the sun dipped towards the horizon just magical. The trip just got better and better with African Penguins and southern right whales on the coast, Cape Rockjumpers and Cape Sugarbirds more dream birds! Then Kruger National Park to complete this wonderful exciting tour, and yes we saved the best to the last! So many colourful birds and mega mammals! Come and join us soon.

Cape buffalo at a waterhole - huge animals.

Sometimes you just need a break, white rhino taking it easy.

We watched sixteen white rhinos during this wonderful tour!

Seeing wild African elephants is just magical, a few tears were shed by our group.

The mammals are just wonderful but so are the birds! Lilac-breasted Roller.

Burchell's Courser was a lovely surprise and so close.

This singing White-throated Robin-chat was enjoyed in the garden at Kruger.

On our last morning in Kruger we struck gold with two cheetah!

Not only amazing wildlife in South Africa - superb sun sets too!
