About the Birding

Birding is our speciality with excellent local guides whose knowledge will assist you with your birding wish list. Not only do these guides assist you with their excellent observation skills in finding the specials on your wish list but also add great value to any birding outing by providing security & peace of mind when travelling in some more remote areas. For the adventurous, you might like to SUP (Stand up & Paddle) or slow boat ride along the Umlalazi estuary where there is an abundance of mangroves & birdlife along the shoreline.
