South Africa has a well-deserved reputation as a fantastic vacation destination for those who want beautiful landscapes, world-class food and wine, excellent infrastructure, and lots of charismatic megafauna. When you throw in 70 or so endemic birds, it becomes a fantastic birding destination, too. Josh Engel, who spent over three years based in Cape Town working as a birding and safari guide, will take us on a virtual tour of South Africa. We will start in the rugged and endemic-filled Western Cape tucked in the southwest corner of the country, crossing the beautiful, rolling grasslands of the highveld, all the way to the mammal-laden bushveld of Kruger National Park in the northeast. A lavishly illustrated slideshow will highlight the birds, animals, and landscapes of South Africa, with a focus on the recently-completed ENSBC tour.
