About the Birding Site
Three different bird species, a Warbler, a Woodpecker and a Turaco, all point to the town of Knysna and the diverse birding it has to offer. Wrapped around a magnificent lagoon and separated from the Indian Ocean by the dramatic Knysna Heads, it has something to offer for the whole family including the offer of pelagic birding.
