Package Itinerary

Birding Tour –Lesotho 1 Day

Take a guided tour from the small Kwa Zulu Natal towns of Underberg and Himeville and through the Southern Drakensberg into the highlands of Lesotho.

Depart at 06H30 from Guest Lodge, with a packed lunch provided for and start to ascend the Legendary Sani Pass. You will see the Bush Blackcap, Ground Woodpecker and the Gurneys Sugar Bird. Whilst travelling from scrub to Proteas grassland. Once at an altitude of (1800m) one may find species such as the Drakensberg Siskin and the Drakensberg Rock jumper.

While on tour, one may at any time see the majestic Bearded Vulture, which inhabits the mountainous regions of the Lesotho highlands. The Bearded Vulture uses Lesotho for its nesting, but forages mostly in the Ukhahlamba National Park of the Southern Drakensberg special will be the Mountain Pipit, only seen in the summer months.

Due to their constant change in habitat and once in Lesotho (2874m) several species found in the Karoo areas may be seen right across the Kwa Zulu Natal border, such as the Skewing Chat, Thick-Billed Lark, Lanyards Tit-Babbler and others.

After a packed lunch, we now start ascending the Black Mountain Pass (3394m). Theres always a good chance of seeing the Cape Vulture, Lammergeier/Bearded Vulture, Falcon, Harriers and the Black Eagle.

Descend the Black Mountain (Seqodo Pass) and visit the New Highest Pub in Africa-the Sani Stone Lodge for a refreshment stop, if time permits. Descending the Sani Pass back into South Africa, we might see a couple of birds we missed in the late afternoon.
