Ocean Grove is a birder friendly establishment, perfectly situated on the South Coast component route of the Southern KwaZulu-Natal Birding Route. This route has a bird list of over 500 species, including 64 endemic or near endemic species and 67 red data species. The South Coast Birding Route is unique, having a variety of habitats from coastal and wetland environments to forest, woodland and grassland. It is only in the region of the South Coast Birding Route that South Africa’s two distinct avifaunas (afromontane and tropical forest) overlap, making birding in this area extremely rewarding. Specials include the northernmost population of Knysna Woodpecker and other highly sought-after species including Magpie Manikin and African Broadbill.
At Ocean Grove, guests can stroll through the gardens, under the huge, shady, indigenous trees and enjoy an abundance of bird life without leaving the property. Our guests can also visit the close-by Mpenjati, Umtamvuna and Oribi Gorge nature reserves.
