Birding Experience

Come and enjoy a morning of birding in the heart of Port Elizabeth with bird expert Andy Nixon. Settlers Park is a bird magnet in the center of Port Elizabeth. Birds in the park include half-collard Kingfisher, Knysna Woodpecker, Grey Sunbird, Peregrine Falcon, Thick-billed Weaver and Black Cuckooshrike. Knysna Turaco are also common in the park! All levels from beginner to experts welcome!

At the heart of Port Elizabeth, a short walking distance from the city centre, harbour, and very close to the Windy City’s favourite beaches, lies the Baakens Valley. It is situated within a raw piece of nature that cuts Port Elizabeth straight through the middle, a geological phenomenon very unique to the area, sometimes referred to as Port Elizabeth’s “inverted Table Mountain”.
