Southern KZN Birding Route


Funded by the Sappi WWF TreeRoutes Partnership, this project is aimed at showcasing the many rare, localised and endemic bird species in the Southern KwaZulu-Natal. It is also looking to create sustainable livelihoods for local community members and provide a platform and incentive for positive conservation action.

The overall objective of the project is to add direct economic value to birds and their natural habitats in Southern KZN through the development of avitourism in the area.

This route which takes visitors from beaches and forests to mountainous terrain provides you with the opportunity to see the Blue Swallow, Cape Parrot, Drakensberg Rock-jumper, all three South African Crane species, Bearded Vulture most of which are only found in this area.
A birding guide has also been established giving birders an opportunity to read about the area and tick off the many bird species they have spotted while along the route.

Eight bird guides have also been trained and are being integrated along the route.
