 Facts about the Birds of Southern Africa

Bird Watching in South Africa

South Africa’s dense forests, scrubby bushveld, rugged mountain ranges, plunging valleys, endless savannahs, and long stretches of coastline share one common trait; they all provide gorgeous habitats for an inordinate variety of colourful birds. These birds are as varied and diverse as the people that spend hours watching them, and promise exquisite displays and irresistible antics as they enjoy the unspoilt loveliness of South Africa.
