A Lilac-breasted Roller in South Africa

Described as “a world in one country,” South Africa is a land of unique ecosystems and micro-habitats that support an extraordinary diversity of birds, mammals, reptiles and botany. Add in a tapestry of spectacular scenic delights and significant cultural sites, and it becomes clear why this country is a such a sought-after destination.

From the convergence of two great oceans off the Cape of Good Hope to the subtropical savanna woodlands of the world-acclaimed Kruger National Park, we’ll enjoy a paradise of wildlife-viewing and cultural attractions at the very best time of the year in South Africa – the transition into spring and early summer.

Wildlife from South Africa - travel with BirdNote to the Western Cape and Kruger

Sallie Bodie, executive director of BirdNote, will be our host, and expert naturalist Patrick Cardwell of Avian Leisure will guide our activities. All of our birding and cultural exploration will be complemented by social time, stories from BirdNote, and an amazing African safari.
