South Africa, in partnership with Birding Ecotours

Birding and Wildife Safari (Kruger NP & Escarpment)
October 1 – 10, 2022

Join Luke Safford and local experts on a wonderful trip to South Africa! We’ll spend 10 days in one of South Africa’s richest areas for birds, mammals and other wildlife, in one of the world’s most famous game parks, Kruger National Park. This massive park covers a vast area and is teeming with Africa’s mammals, both big and small, including African Elephant, Giraffe, Burchell’s Zebra, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and many more. The great thing for birders, though, is that it’s full of easy to see, spectacular-looking species, such as several species of rollers, bee-eaters, kingfishers, hornbills, vultures, owls, storks, and more! The park is full of birds of prey including the spectacular and colorful Bateleur, plus a good chance of finding Secretarybird, Kori Bustard (the world’s heaviest flying bird), and Southern Ground Hornbill. This will be an adventure you will never forget! View full trip information and itinerary here.

Cape Town and Pelagic pre-trip
September 24 – October 1, 2022

We’ve now also added an 8-day Cape Town area pre-trip. This allows you to experience the endemic-rich, scenically beautiful, “Fairest Cape” including the opportunity to join a 1-day Cape Town pelagic sea trip for albatrosses and many other birds. We expect to see African Penguin, Cape Rockjumper, dazzling sunbirds and extravagantly long-tailed Cape Sugarbirds. A couple of days in the Karoo should allow you to see birds endemic to the semi-desert just inland from Cape Town. Southern Right Whale, Cape Mountain Zebra and other special mammals are also likely to be seen. View full trip information and itinerary here.

With a small group (7 participants) and two guides you’ll be guaranteed plenty of individual attention to help you get the most out of your experience. And if you’ve ever been on a field trip with Luke you know not only what a great birder he is but also how much he enjoys birding with others and making it a fun experience for everyone. Like all of our Birding Excursions, your participation supports our emerging and growing Education program.

Fee for main trip (Kruger & Escarpment): R77,500 per person—shared room (prices in South African rand); R8,100 for single supplement
Fee for pre-trip (Cape Town and Pelagic): R55,915 person–shared room (prices in South African rand); R6,145 for single supplement
