Birding

Birders will be pleasantly rewarded with sightings of many of the more than 350 species occurring in Tuli Wilderness’ habitat: Meyer’s Parrot, Meve’s Starlings, Southern Black Tit, African Mourning Dove, African Scops-Owl visit are resident all year round and summer brings visitors like Broadbilled Roller, Eurasian Golden Oriole, Woodland Kingfisher and Levalliant’s Cuckoo. Raptors include Little Sparrowhawk and Gabar Goshawk. Be sure to look out for the resident breeding pair of Verreaux’s Eagles at Eagle Rock.

Birding is particularly good between October and March, depending on when the rains arrive. At this time the bush is also particularly lush with wildflowers blooming. The bush thins out from March onwards and is at its driest from July to October.
