Rooiels is situated approximately an hours drive from Cape Town on the eastern shore of False Bay. It is here that we will spend the morning walking through the diverse mountain fynbos in search of some of the Cape’s special birds.

The latter half of the day involves birding afromontane forest patches in the Betty’s Bay area for birds such as Blue-manteled Crested and African Paradise Flycatcher, Cape Batis, Olive Pigeon, Forest Canary, Olive Woodpecker, Sombre Greenbul, African and Rufous-chested Sparrow Hawk. The wetter mountain fynbos can deliver the skulking fynbos endemic, Victorin’s Warbler. Making a stop at Stony Point, one of only two land-based African Penguin colonies we search for four species of marine cormorant, including the criically endangered Bank Cormorant and a host of other seabirds!

This day tour is an absolute must for any birder visiting Cape Town and it will deliver some special birds and memories. This is also one of the better Cape Town day tours for bird photographers.

West Coast Birding Day Tour

Experience the West Coast with Fangs and Feathers on this exciting birding day tour. A West Coast birding tour is the perfect extension to our Cape Peninsula or Rooiels tours.

Approximately one hour north of Cape Town lies the beautiful and avian rich Strandveld biome where we bird the West Coast National Park and Darling Hills. We also visit the Berg River Estuary and Vredenberg Peninsula to search for certain species like Cape Long-billed Lark at certain times of the year.

The birds seen on this tour are very different to those found on our other birding day tours.  There is the added bonus of seeing some of the arid Karoo biome’s species such as Karoo Lark, White-backed Mousebird and Chestnut-vented Titbabbler to name a few.  August to October is usually the best time of the year to visit the area when birds are displayinga and the wildflowers are in bloom. The estuaries are shorebird magnets for Paleartic breeding migrants between November and April.

This tour requires an early start from Cape Town at approximately 06h30 and return between 17:00 -18:00. We also offer overnight stays in the area which ensures more species.  Lunches are either “on the go” or we eat at convenient local resturants, depending on your personal requirements.
