This route allows bird enthusiasts to explore the vast West Coast region. The bird route leads to ten popular birding destinations that include Rietvlei and the Milnerton Lagoon, the West Coast National Park, the SAS Saldanha Nature Reserve, West Coast Fossil Park, Vredenburg/Saldanha Golf Club, Berg River Hides, Rocherpan Nature Reserve, Verlorenvlei, Elands Bay, Bird Island, Lamberts Bay, the Olifant’s River Estuary and Papendorp.
These sites are all well-known bird habitats and the ideal holiday for an avid bird-watcher would probably include a visit to all these sites. However, if this is impossible, rest assured that any one of these sites offers such diversity that it is worth the trip. Besides, you can always return next year to visit the other sites as well, can you not?
