Endemic Cape Rockjumper, Cape Sisken, Ground Woodpecker and Orange-breasted Sunbird are just some of the special birds you can expect to see with Fangs and Feathers on this exciting birding tour.
Rooiels is situated approximately an hours drive from Cape Town on the eastern shore of False Bay. It is here that we will spend the morning walking through the diverse mountain fynbos in search of some of the Cape's special birds.
The latter half of the day involves birding afromontane forest patches in the Betty's Bay area for birds such as Blue-manteled Crested and African Paradise Flycatcher, Cape Batis, Olive Pigeon, Forest Canary, Olive Woodpecker, Sombre Greenbul, African and Rufous-chested Sparrow Hawk. The wetter mountain fynbos can deliver the skulking fynbos endemic, Victorin's Warbler. Making a stop at Stony Point, one of only two land-based African Penguin colonies we search for four species of marine cormorant, including the criically endangered Bank Cormorant and a host of other seabirds!
This day tour is an absolute must for any birder visiting Cape Town and it will deliver some special birds and memories. This is also one of the better Cape Town day tours for bird photographers.
