Birding

Take a guided tour from the small KwaZulu-Natal village of Underberg through the southern Drakensberg into the highlands of Lesotho.

You will see Bush Blackcap, Ground Woodpecker and Gurney's Sugarbird whilst raveling from scrub to Protea grassland. Once at an altitude of 1.800m, one may find species such as the Drakensberg Sisken and the Drakensberg Rockjumper.

While on this tour, one may at any time see the majestic Bearded Vulture which inhabits the mountain region of Lesotho for nesting, but forages into the farmlands along the Drakensberg. A special in the highlands would be the Mountain Pipit, only seen here in summer. Due to the change in habitat, once in Lesotho several species found in the Karoo areas may be seen right across the KwaZulu-Natal border, such as the Siklewing Chat, Thick-billed Lark, Layards Tit-Barbler and others. There is always the possibility of seeing the Cape Vulture, Lanner, Falcons or Black Harriers. For a fun-filled bird spotting adventure, at the base of the Drakensberg. All tours in comfortable and enclosed 4x4 vehicles, which accommodate 4-5 guests and their equipment. Service with qualified Birding Guide.
