Bring Your Binos for Bumper Birding
More than 240 bird species have been recorded at Gwahumbe – and our list was compiled by leading African birder, David Hoddinott, who conducts regular bird outings in the reserve. The diversity of habitat offers fantastic valley, bushveld, and savanna birding opportunities for casual birdwatching and passionate twitchers alike. Our ever-expanding species checklist includes forest species like the Trumpeter Hornbill and Narina Trogon, waterbirds, a range of grassland birds, and a variety of raptors. The latter includes the endangered Crowned Eagle, which is recorded to have bred in the valley for over 25 years. The endangered Ground Hornbill has also been recorded and is an always remarkable sighting.
