Cape Rockjumper

An extravaganza of flowers, singing birds and displaying whales make springtime in the Western Cape an exhilarating destination.

An extravaganza of flowers, singing birds and displaying whales makes early summer in the Western Cape an exhilarating destination. Stunning proteas drip with sunbirds and sugarbirds in the shadow of Table Mountain while, further along the coast Southern Right Whales congregate, sending massive blows into the sky and breaching to the delight of gathered onlookers on the shore. Elegant Black Harriers float low over coastal scrub while Blue Cranes dance in farm fields. From humble beginnings in 1982, there is now a large, thriving and extraordinarily confiding colony of African Penguins which pose for all to enjoy. On top of this, the forests, mountains, fynbos and wetlands of the region offer other ornithological riches including endemics such as Cape Rockjumper, Knysna Warbler and Cape Siskin.  Our two-week tour will take a circular route around the Western Cape, stopping at strategic points in hand-picked quality accommodation where we take time to enjoy the many local offerings.
