Tsitsikamma, situated along the exquisite Garden Route, is a haven for birdlife. It is the ideal getaway for nature-lovers, particularly those that love looking out for some of the most beautiful avian species soaring above or nesting in the dense forests all around. Some of the most common species to be found in this area include:

• The Yellowbilled Kite – a large bird of prey with a forked tail, this bird is known for its midflight acrobatic twists and turns. It is often seen close to human communities.

• The Marico Sunbird – males have a black belly and a magnificently iridescent purple band, with a green-blue head and back. Females are dull khaki brown with light-coloured streaks on their undersides.

• The Rameron Pigeon – this is the largest dove in the region and is characterised by its yellow bill and the bare skin around their eyes and on their legs. It favours evergreen forests.

• The Knysna Loerie – known for its spectacular colours, this bird is bright green with beautiful “eye make-up”. It has a long tail and a prominent crest. When it flies, the bright red on the underside of its wings flashes impressively.

• The Barn Owl – the characteristic heart shape of this owl’s face makes it particularly rewarding to spot. It is most active in the early morning and evening, and can often be found in areas frequented by humans.
