Places to explore
From the national parks of the Karoo Heartland to biodiverse Somerset East and the mountains of Nieu-Bethesda and Middelburg, there is a stunning variety of birdlife to be enjoyed in our wild Karoo. The birding list boasts over 30 endemic species alongside sunbirds, raptors, narina trogon and yellow-throated woodland warbler, double-banded courser and buff-streaked chat. The lists for each region of the Karoo Heartland are extensive and enough to convince any birder that a visit is absolutely essential.
