This comprehensive tour covers the most exciting regions of the Cape in our quest to experience both breathtaking displays of wildflowers and to track down some of the continent’s most exciting birds & animals. We begin in the vibrant city of Cape Town, where Table Mountain provides a spectacular backdrop to the immensely diverse fynbos that cloaks the cities periphery. This Fynbos constitutes the Cape Floral Kingdom – the smallest and richest of the world’s 6 floral kingdoms. It is also the only floral kingdom to be confined to the boundaries of a single country.

Thereafter, we venture to the West Coast and Namaqualand, which boast an outrageous and world famous floral display in years of good rains, before heading out of wildflower country to Augrabies Falls and then the Kalahari “desert”, an area offering unparalleled raptor viewing and the chance to see black-maned Lions and a wide range of dry region birds and game. We conclude the journey travelling through the heart of the country’s semi-desert region, focusing on the special birds endemic to this ancient landscape. We invite you on this celebration of some of the finest wildflower and endemic birding that the African continent has to offer!
