South Africa and Lesotho:
27 October - 21 November , 2000

  • South Africa (including Lesotho) is a major birding destination with c. 800 species and close to 150 Southern African endemics or near-endemics. South Africa is an active birding country, its avifauna is well known and there are excellent field guides. It is a beautiful and highly scenic place with many protected natural areas and, in addition to the birds, a good representation of the African megafauna with many large mammals....John McAllister reports for Beautiful Just Birding.

Some Useful bird books for Lesotho:
Do you have a good book for this region that we haven't featured? let us know


The Larger Illustrated Sasol Guide to Birds of Southern Africa
Buy from or

  • This new edition of "Sasol Birds" is larger in both size and extent; a new section deals with the identification of "problem species", or those which are difficult to tell apart. Intended for use in the field, the text is pitched at a level to appeal to beginners, although the detail suggests it may also be of interest to more serious and professional birdwatchers. Distribution information is shown by means of a colour map, and the whole book is colour-coded according to the different bird groups. Probably the best of the current guides.
