About your host

I have been an avid birder ever since I can remember, and over the years I have developed a skill for identifying birds by their calls and I got to know the birds very well, as well as the best birding spots of the Garden Route.

Where you'll be

We will be visiting a patch of forest near George, which is one of the best forest birding spots in the Garden Route. In fact, it is my favourite birding spot, and I have been visiting it ever since 2004. What is special about this spot is that very few people actually know about it. We will stop for coffee / tea at a secret spot right in the middle of the forest. Hopefully we will spot the elusive Narina Trogon here.
