Barry Porter Memorial Hide now open

 Hi all,
Our Oribi Vulture Viewing Hide is now fully operational. Details as follows.

Advance booking is ESSENTIAL. This site is not open to the general public.

Close to Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve on the KZN South Coast, the Barry Porter Memorial Hide overlooks a vulture restaurant on the site of a breeding colony of 120 Cape Vultures. The hide offers visitors exclusive opportunities to observe and photograph these threatened birds up close in their natural habitat.
Two hour site visits (which do not include use of the hide) are also available.
Visitors will be taken to the cliff edge, where they can see the breeding sites and observe vultures soaring along the ridge at eye level.
This is a conservation project managed by Birdlife Trogons Bird Club in association with the landowner and UGU South Coast Tourism.

Cape Vulture, White-backed Vulture, Yellow-billed Kite, Jackal Buzzard, Rock Kestrel, Lanner Falcon, Rock Martin, Alpine Swift, African Marsh-Harrier, Croaking Cisticola, Rattling Cisticola, Common Quail, Red-capped Lark, Rufous-naped Lark, African Pipit, Plain-backed Pipit.
