Avid birders should not delay in making their bookings for the Sasol Addo Birding Weekend which will be held in Addo Elephant National Park from 31 October to 2 November 2014.
The weekend of birding will offer a wonderful opportunity to experience the diverse biomes of Addo Elephant National Park and the chance to spot over 200 bird species.
Organised by the SANParks Honorary Rangers at Addo, participants will have a choice of taking part in different excursions. Birders will join groups birding in different areas of the ecologically diverse Addo Elephant National Park.
Excursions include a trip through the Nyathi area of the Park, which is an exclusive concession area; lazily float up the Sundays River on a ferry spotting different species of kingfishers and water fowl or take a ride through Addo game viewing area and see parts of Addo that are not open to the general public.
The weekend starts on Friday evening with a get-together and ends with a venison potjie on Saturday evening. A variety of accommodation has been pre-booked by the Honorary Rangers in Addo Elephant National Park and bookings should be done well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Sasol has provided sponsorship for logistics and lucky draw prizes with Stretton’s Gin being the other main sponsors. Funds raised by the Honorary Rangers birding weekend will go towards funding conservation support work within Addo.
Bookings for the birding weekend close on 25 August 2014.
