Cape Peninsula – Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve
About the Birding
Starting at the entrance gate (-34.2617, 18.4581), birding stops anywhere along the roads within the park can produce fynbos species such as Orange-breasted Sunbird and Cape Sugarbird. The rocky slopes on the right on the road before the Olifantsbos turnoff are worth checking for Cape, and Sentinel Rock Thrushes. Cape Siskins and Ground Woodpeckers can also be found in more rocky areas.
About the Birding Site
Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve is a world-famous tourist attraction situated at the tip of the Cape Peninsula. Better known for its scenic and dramatic views, this southerly section of greater Table Mountain National Park, also offers good birding.
