A journey through one of South Africa’s most bird rich regions.
Situated in the north-eastern reaches of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, the Maputaland Centre of Endemism is one of the most bird rich regions in southern Africa with over 450 species having been recorded. Four biomes including the Indian Ocean Coastal Belt, Savannah, Grasslands and Forest biomes, span the landscape and underpin a vastly diverse avifauna including Rudd’s Apalis, Lemon-breasted Canary, Southern Banded Snake-Eagle, Neergaard’s Sunbird, Plain-backed Sunbird and Livingstone’s Turaco.
This relatively accessible region of KwaZulu-Natal has some of the best bird watching opportunities in the country and is a key area to include on any birdwatching itinerary to South Africa.
