Hermanus and its surrounding areas are a birder’s paradise. Few other areas can offer fynbos, mountain, coastal, river and estuarine habitats in such compact terrain, with such easy access.

Birders come from far and wide to spot the Western Cape specials such as the Orange-breasted sunbird, the Cape sugarbird, Cape siskin, Victorin’s warbler, the Cape Bulbul, the Southern tchagra, the Protea seedeater and many others including more than 186 water bird species. The Bot River and Klein River estuaries, the Onrus River and the Vermont Saltpan offer many surprises including pelicans and flamingos.

BirdLife Overberg is very active and is an umbrella body for the local clubs that exist throughout the Overberg. They have a huge infrastructure to service birders, with heaps of educational material available.
