Birding Experiences

Thali Thali is home to a long list of bird species within its boundaries. The South African national bird, the blue crane, is one of the species that feature not only on the five-cent coin but also here. If you are lucky enough to see these regal birds, do not disturb them, especially if they are in breeding.

The West Coast is the southernmost point for the Palaearctic migratory birds from the northern Europe and Siberia, so one can see birds most other people just dream of.
