Reed Cormorant, Rietkormorant of Rietduiker, (Microcarbo africanus). Perfectly at peace as the backlight of the afternoon golden hour soaks its primary feathers. Only patience, experience and lots of luck provide the opportunity to take such a shot. The cormorant shakes off the remaining drops of water after the last dive for the day. Now it is time to settle in a safe and comfortable roosting spot for the night.

About Birdwatcher - The idea of the Birdwatcher website was born from the passion and love for God’s creation. Beautiful creatures like birds and animals around us and the smell of fresh air was the inspiration behind showing others something of what photographers experience in nature through their camera lenses.

Through publishing a photo or image of nature we can also make others aware of the things around us and inspire photographers to become perfect in what they do. Birdwatcher is therefore not a website for photographers or birdwatchers only, anyone who is interested in nature can learn more of the fauna and flora of our country. Birdwatcher intends to make others aware, not only through the lens of a camera, but via our actions and friendship.

Birdwatcher can also provide specialist 1 and 2 day bird watching trips in the Garden Route and other areas. Please contact us to check availability.

Birding hotspots are our initiative to provide our visitors with the opportunity to explore a birding route virtually in the comfort of their own space. With the 360 degree view of the area you can experience the whole scene, find what birds you can expect and what the terrain looks like.

Testimonials

“Ben, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us. It was a wonderful experience and we really appreciate all the time you devoted to us. The list of sightings is nothing short of amazing especially in light of our late start. We hope to be able to do this again. With sincere thanks, Joe and Anne Caruso” -- JOE AND ANNE CARUSO (U.S.A.)

“Ben loves to entertain tourists on these occasions and we have many memorable times around the camp fires. His knowledge of the cultural and historical aspects of most areas makes him a very interesting companion and guide. His knowledge of nature which include wildlife, astronomy, birds and reptiles is outstanding and I have spent many hours with Ben in the veld. Ben is a responsible guide and has a good knowledge of tracking and bush signs. I have accompanied Ben on many birding trips and I am impressed with his knowledge of birds, bird behaviour and bird calls. Ben has opened a new dimension in birding for me. Since I have started birding with Ben my love for birds has been rekindled and I look forward to the next trip.” -- WILLIE JACOBS (R.S.A.)
