Kwendalo Bird List reaches 100 species sighted

We are delighted to share that Kwendalo recorded our 100th species of bird this week at Kwendalo when Andre Victor shared with us this photo he took of a female Black Cuckooshrike at our bird hide! He also sighted our 99th bird: a Black-backed Puffback.

The area around Plettenberg Bay and the Garden Route, and the Bitou Wetlands in particular, offers renowned opportunities for birding and nature enthusiasts to enjoy the rich avian diversity of the region. With a range of habitats that host more than 450 species of birds – over half of South Africa’s bird species – the birding possibilities are appealing. Added to which, 50 of South Africa’s 69 endemic or near-endemic species are found along the Garden Route and almost nowhere else in the world.

Additionally, Kwendalo’s Manor House is an official Birdlife South Africa Recommended Accommodation Provider. Kwendalo has been added to BirdLife South Africa’s Go Birding website.
