Birds of South Africa

€ 17.49 *

South Africa is a magnificent birding area. It is famous for its multitude of habitats, ranging from dramatic mountains to savannas to semi-desert plains. Mountain Mafadi in the Drakensberg reaches an altitude of 3450 m. In addition, South Africa has a great wealth of flowering plants, outstanding is the Cape Floral Kingdom, one of the six floral kingdoms. South Africa is one of the 17 megadiverse countries on earth. The diversity of habitats entails a extraordinarily high bird diversity: on the level of bird families the number is 103. Some of the bird families are truely spectacular, such as hornbills, rollers, parrots, trogons, and turacos. South Africa has an excellent network of national parks and nature reserves. The largest and most well-known is the Kruger National Park. Although mainly known for its fabulous game safaris, the Kruger NP has an enormous amount of avidiversity, too. Furthermore, two small uninhabited islands in the sub-antarctic Indian Ocean - 1 769 km south-east of Port Elizabeth - named Prince Edward Islands are Special Nature Reserves. It is estimated that the islands support 8 million seabirds total. Much easier to travel is the popular Garden Route in the south of the mainland, blessed with a climate, comparable to the Mediterranean climate, and a perfect touristic infrastructure.
