Birding & Nature Retreat

Emily Moon Birding & Nature Retreat Garden Route1

Discover the beauty of the Garden Route!

During the summertime, the Garden Route shows off more than ever! Its diverse landscape blossoms anew, drawing the attention of nature lovers as well as exciting and uncommon birds such as the Narina Trogon, Cape Siskin, Victorin’s Warbler, Half-collared Kingfisher and Knysna Woodpecker. The Garden Route is home to over 300 species of birds with close to 30 species endemic to Southern African.

Along with Emily Moon, Colin Wylie – specialist nature guide and experienced birder – will be hosting an exciting weekend of walking and birding, unpacking the Garden Route’s rich natural heritage as we cover its diverse landscape, from land to sea. ( > Click here for more on Colin Wylie)
