Birding with Barry

I am a registered Tour Guide, qualified to operate in the Eastern and Western Cape. I am not a trained bird guide but birding is my favourite pastime and as a result I have built up a wealth of experience in this field. I will tailor make bird tours to any area in registered regions. I have vast experience in the Transkei, East Cape Karoo and Southern Drakensberg areas. I have recorded and photographed over 500 bird species in the Eastern Cape only, so would most likely be able to find any bird for a life list in this area.
