About this book

The greater Gauteng region includes Pretoria and Johannesburg. While often overlooked by birders on their travels further afield, this region, with its diversity of natural and modified habitats, offers over 450 bird species. Many specials, including 80 endemics / near endemics, are more easily seen here than anywhere else on Earth!

This book provides 101 birding sites with in-depth details on access, accommodation, habitats and specials; full colour site maps and information icons; illustrated features on identification challenges and finding sought-after species; supplementary information on other wildlife, geology and botany; a selection of top weekend trips; recommended birding itineraries; bi-monthly birding calendar with suggested birding activities for the whole year; and an annotated checklist (English and Afrikaans), featuring old and new bird names.
