Bird Watching

For the bird lovers.

While most of the Estate is classified as Coastal Indigenous Forest, the close proximity of Grassland, Acacia thicket and the De Stades River Wetland, creates an ideal eco-diversity for bird watching.

Three hundred and fifty-two species have been listed in the area, including many elusive species such as the Narina Trogon, African Rail, Grey Sunbird and the often heard Buff-Spotted, Red-Chested and Striped Flufftails.

You are always assured of seeing the Knysna Loerie (Turaco) our signature bird, with its magnificent crimson and green plumage.

On a good morning, guests have seen all 5 of our listed kingfishers within the estate, which on its own has been a highlight for some.
