    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some of the birds seen in the area are:

    Kelp Gulls and Cape Gannet ~ found everywhere along the coast here.

    Giant Kingfishers and African Black Oystercatchers ~ along the coast and river.

    African Crowned Eagle, African Goshawk, Black Sparrowhawk and African Wood Owl ~ in the forest tself.

    There are plenty more too!

    Bird lovers paradise :)

    Equipment: There is plenty of birdwatching to be done, dont forget your binoculars!

    It is a shame we didnt have the camera equipment we have today, 6 years ago, as we would have got some amazing bird shots - oh well, next time :)

    Gentler sports...

    by Jenniflower Updated Jun 29, 2007

    There are 'gentler' sporty things you can do here, some for the novice and some for the more adventurous!

    There are also more extreme sports you can do too, which is detailed in the tip below.

    There are the more adventurous hikes and trails to do, as well as more gentle and shorter walks to do.

    You can go swimming upriver (I wouldnt swim by the mouth of the river due to the shark presence, plus the currents here are very strong, so swimmign is dangerous).

    You can go on boat rides into the river itself, and do scuba diving in designated areas.

    Equipment: If you want to do scuba diving, make sure you have a valid certificate for such, as well as all the necessary equipment.
