Birds and birding

© Jennifer Stern© Jennifer SternWith about 900 species, many of which are endemic, rare, or just plain beautiful, southern Africa offers fantastic birding, including some excellent sightings of seabirds. While you’re likely to get some good bird sightings on a general safari or even a sightseeing tour, there are a number of specialised birding trips ranging from half-day escorted jaunts on the outskirts of cities to organised treks across the continent. Some game reserves and national parks also have specific birding programmes. And, although it isn’t nearly as exciting as watching birds in the wild, you can get to see a lot of different species of birds at some interesting bird parks and rehabililtation centres.
