Bird watching and nature walk in and around Port Elizabeth. Code (HD05)
7:30 am pick up at place of residence. We depart for the Cape Recife Lighthouse and Nature reserve and a guided tour of the SANCCOB, the South African marine re-habilitation centre.
At the lighthouse we orientate and learn the history of Cape Recife and its working lighthouse. We search the shoreline for the many species of Waders, Shore and Marine birds that utilize this important area. Here we look for interesting and endangered species like the Black Oystercatcher and Roseate tern amongst the many different species.
We continue inland to the settlement ponds, an area rich in both bush and water birds, here we look for Warblers, Waders and a variety of water birds. Hadeda and Sacred Ibis are common with the possibility of catching a glimpse of a shy resident Purple Gallinule.
We enjoy a coffee break in the area before returning to Port Elizabeth and your accommodation in the early afternoon.
