Bird watching
It is a bird lovers paradise – along seashores, coastlands, mountains and in wetlands.

The Hangklip area is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. There are many beautiful quiet places here, where a variety of birdlife is to be found, be it in Pringle Bay village, the core area of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve or the Harold Porter Botanical gardens. This area is home to many birds, both large and small, some of which are endangered species. Access is easy, only an hours drive from Cape Town for lovers of nature.

In various areas in the Overberg the following species can be spotted: raptors; Black and Martial Eagles; Jackal Buzzards; migrant Steppe Buzzards; Black Shouldered Kites; Black Sparrow Hawks; Gulls and Cormorants; Egyptian Geese, Little Egrets, Cape Wagtails and a variety of Swallows and Swifts are often seen around rock pools; Seedeaters such as the Cape Bulbul, Rameron Pigeon, Speckled Mouse bird and Grass bird; Black Oyster Catchers, White Fronted Plovers; Roseate & Caspian Terns; Blue Mantled Flycatcher and Fish Eagles. We have a resident fiery necked nightjar along with a burchells coucal in our fynbos garden.
