Bird watching day tours around Cape Town can include three or more of the venues on our day tour list. 

The quaint seaside town of Kommetjie on the Cape Peninsula is perhaps best known to surfers. However, for birdwatching and bird photography in Cape Town and the Western Cape it is one of the most likely venues to see all three endemic cormorant species. Birdwatchers can expect to see

Crowned, Bank, White Breasted and Cape Cormorants
Swift, Common
and Sandwich Terns
Black Oystercatcher
Sacred and Hadeda Ibis
Kelp and Hartlaub’s Gull
Little Egret
Blacksmith Lapwing
White-fronted Plover
Sanderling
Common Whimbrel
Common Sandpiper
Common Ringed and Three-ringed Plover
Ruddy Turnstone

Migrant waders are present in the summer months only. Photographic opportunities are excellent.
