Take in the endemic-rich and complementary western and eastern birding zones of South Africa – a country of great contrast and exceptional diversity. The Western Cape is fascinating scenically and one of the world’s Floristic Kingdoms, very unlike the rest of Africa. The principle birding habitats here include heath-like Cape fynbos, coastal strandveld, rocky Atlantic coastline, and the arid Karoo with a resultant glut of endemics. We then fly to the bird- and mammal-rich savannahs of Kruger National Park before ending in the montane forests and grasslands of the country’s interior for added bird diversity. An optional pelagic trip out of Cape Town can also be added as a pre-trip extension.
