Best birdwatching experience in Southern Africa
South Africa is renowned to have extremely diverse habitats. The provinces of KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga on South Africa’s eastern seaboard boast some of the country’s finest birdwatching and exceptional mammal viewing. An impressive 750 plus species of bird occur in the region, reflecting the wonderful natural diversity of the area; and this, coupled with a modern infrastructure well suited to the needs of the modern traveller, makes birdwatching here an absolute delight. From the classic African savanna of the world-renowned Kruger National Park and the teeming Zululand game reserves, to the endemic-rich mist-belt forests of the Natal Midlands and the lofty peaks of the magnificent Drakensberg, this tour of Eastern South Africa offers the very best of African birding and game viewing.
By the time when ElementZ is releasing this specialized birding itinerary, our ecofriendly lodge operator partner Wilderness Safaris has just exclaimed a rarely sighting of Ross’s Turaco in Southern Africa – the last sighting dated back to 2011.
