After an early collection at your hotel in Johannesburg or Pretoria, we’ll head north into prime “bushveld” habitat north of Pretoria. A summer outing here offers over 100 species in a few hours in a morning.

Birds include greater Kalahari specials such as Southern Pied BabblerAshy TitCrimson-breasted ShrikeShaft-tailed WhydahViolet-eared Waxbill, and Barred Wren-Warbler. Other common birds we’ll probably find are White-browed Sparrow-WeaverSouthern Yellow-billed Hornbill and two other hornbill species, Burchell’s Glossy Starling, and several beautiful bee-eater and roller species.

After lunch (unless you only want to do a half-day trip), we can travel southwards to visit diverse areas of woodland, wetland, and rocky outcrop. We can visit the Seringveld Conservancy, where Kurrichane ThrushStriped Kingfisher, and Southern Black Flycatcher are likely. Local specials here include Pallid FlycatcherGreen-capped Eremomela, and Tinkling Cisticola.

The guide for day trips is allocated only after you have booked, as all of them are run as private trips. But we always use the country’s top birding guides.
