There are six truly special birds in the Fynbos biome, which are restricted to it.  They are mainly associated with mountainous country, but a some will adapt to urbanisation.

A recent birding tour in April 2018 (Southern Hemisphere Autumn/Fall) produced 110 species of birds. Although not the most productive time of year for birds, we managed some great sightings.

At the end of January 2018 we embraked on an exciting catch and release fishing / 4x4 tour on the central Namib Coastline which had been arranged with a group of friends. The focus of the trip was the exploration of the areas remarkable fishery and entailed travelling a 250km stretch of desert and wild Atlantic coastline to the remote desert outpost of Meob Bay.


Wildlife photographic tours in Etosha National Park (Etosha), Namibia are always a unique and different experience.  The vastness of Etosha Pan with its productive waterholes, diverse woodlands and abundant wildlife, all lend to making it one of the world's great parks. During August 2016 I was joined by two friends, Dirk and Anja Düval from Germany on a seven day tour of Etosha where we had some beautiful sightings.

The Cape Clawless Otter (Aonyx capensis) is one of the most overlooked and charasmatic mammals along the coastline of Western Cape Province of South Africa. They are highly adaptable and can survive in close proximity to humans where they carry out their daily activities usually undetected.
