Bird Watching

The Botterkloof Holiday Resort is recommended highly as a base when birding in the area: it is affordable, the chalets are fully equipped and practical and the communal facilities make it an ideal destination for larger groups such as bird clubs.

The farm animals are a constant treat and there are several dams and ponds on the property featuring great birding. Interesting species seen on the property by Overberg Bird club included Cape Batis, Brimstone, Cape, White-throated and Yellow Canaries, African Goshawk, Peregrine Falcon, African Dusky Flycatcher, Brown-hooded and Pied Kingfishers, vast numbers of Common Waxbills and Cardinal and Knysna Woodpeckers.

Botterkloof and Stilbaai are highly underrated as top birding destinations.

The antics of breeding Grey and Black Headed Herons and Black Crowned Knight Herons can be watched in the gum trees.

Botterkloof features a marvellous communal braai area and dining room, (one can choose to dine either indoors or outdoors).
