Birding on foot

You will be guided along the Sabaan River, where guides will lead you into the untouched beauty of nature.  The pathway meanders along the river         ( Suitable for all ages).

The Half-collared Kingfisher that is regarded as near threatened is a definite must see.

The Mountain Wagtail can be easily confused with a Cape Wagtail. This is the perfect habitat for them, jumping from rock to rock looking for insects.

Even the Cape Clawless Otter, Serval,  Red Duiker, Bush Buck and Bush Pigs have been observed here.  

Birds like the Camaropteras, Scrub-Robins,  Appalis, Batis, and Cuckoos will provide music for your ears while looking at the Narina Trogon that is perching and waiting for insects or even a chameleon to eat. 

  • Stay close  to marked hiking trails (MATUMI AND SABAAN).

How the Birding on Foot works:

  • At registration (6:45) am we will inform you where you would need to gather for your activity.
  • At 7:00 am the briefing on the birding day starts. You will be informed what the rules and regulations for the day are.
  • At 7:30 am the guide will meet everyone at the allocated point and depart on the hiking trail. Maximum 10 per group. If you are doing it unguided you can choose between the Sabaan Hiking trail and the Matumi Hiking trail.
  • Make sure you are back at registration by 11:00 am to hand in your bird list.
