More about Birding Tour

The West Coast National park, bordered on the west by the cold, nutrient rich Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful Langebaan Lagoon on the east, is an absolute haven for bird lovers. The Park is only some 25 minutes drive from Paternoster.

At the well placed bird hides along the edge of the lagoon a large variety of waders, sea birds and flamingoes are usually present. Raptors, marsh and dry region species also abound in the area. Of special note are also the regular presence of Marsh Harriers, Booted eagles, with Verreaux's Black eagles and African Fish eagles occasionally spotted.

Of the many Dry Region species one is likely to spot the beautiful Bokmakierie, Cape White eye, ostrich and many more.

The Park is also highly recommended for its spectacular flower display during the winter months, usually from June to mid-September and really is highly recommended. Many wildlife and antelope species such as Cape Mountain zebra, springbok, bontebok, duiker, steenbok, kudu, eland and even hartebeest are often seen at close range.

This is a perfect long morning trip, and can be suitably rounded off with a lunch at the restaurant in the Park or conveniently in Langebaan.
