There are approx 66 species of wild birds visit at  times, with around 20 on show most tours. (See Mik’s Newsletters). Once at the Estuary enjoy a stroll around the lagoons, sandspit and river reserve while enjoying the magnificent scenery and the many wild birds  which inhabit this wonderful area.

Mik’s knowledge

What the Dutchman saw

m really happy I went on your tour. I really enjoyed the birding but also the stories about the birds! So during your tour we got to an amazing number of 37 species and after that, I was able to find 6 more! – 43 in all.                Johnny Rommens [Netherlands]
