Aptly described by Sir Francis Drake as “The Fairest Cape in all the world”, the allure of the Western Cape is not only its stunning scenery, expansive beaches and majestic mountains. Its untamed wilderness areas, numerous nature reserves, indigenous forests and lesser-known areas like the Tanqua Karoo are what draws those who want to explore the province’s finer moments.

We visit one of the great treasure-houses of the botanical world, haven to more than 3000 different floral species. Many of these, for a few weeks in springtime, burst into riotous life, clothing the countryside in a spectacular mantle of orange, yellow and white blooms. Namaqualand also sustains a wide variety of perennials: geophytes, dwarf shrubs and a huge number of succulents. This is the best time of the year for birding , as many of the birds are opportunists which move into the area and breed after winter rain.
This superb tour combines the sparsely populated semi-desert of Bushmanland with its exciting and highly desirable South African endemic birds with the stark beauty of the vast mountain desert known as the Richtersveld. It also provides a juicy taste of the floral splendour of springtime Namaqualand and the rugged beauty and mystique of the Diamond Coast.
This adventure takes us to several exciting destinations and is much, much more than a pure birding trip. We visit three iconic Eastern Cape destinations ie The Baviaanskloof, Addo Elephant National Park and Hogsback.
Escape to the kingdom of eSwatini, a country of rich biodiversity and one of the world’s hotspots of floral and faunal species richness.
