South Africa's Garden Route offers unique Birding opportunities with 30 endemic species in 5 biomes. The mission of Garden Route Birding is to develop a accessibility to Birding and provide information to tourists in the Garden Route and Little Karoo. The Garden Route offers a diverse range of habitats and is home to approximately 300 species of birds with close to 30 species endemic to the Southern Cape making it an ideal destination for bird watching when making travel plans in South Africa.



With a variety of scenic routes, formal bird hides, three National Parks and numerous Cape Nature reserves, opportunity abounds for a rewarding Birding visit to the region. In a short period of time you are able to traverse fynbos, Afromontane forest, Milkwood Forest, Dune fynbos, wetland, marshes and lakes, riverine systems and coastline offering viewing of the colourful Sunbirds, glimpses of African Real, and the reward of spotting both the Knysna Turaco and Narina Trogon.

The lake system in the hart of the Garden Route comprising 5 lakes are ideal locations for waterfowl and waders, four species of Kingfishers, and easy viewing of resident African Fish Eagles.
