The feel-good factor
Cape Town Pelagics donates all its profits to seabird research and
conservation programs, including the BirdLife Save the Albatross
Campaign! So book a tour to see albatrosses and petrels with Cape
Town Pelagics, and you will contribute directly to the conservation
of albatross and other seabirds!
Cape Town Pelagics, a sister company to Birding Africa, offers
seabirding pelagic trips, led by marine ornithologists and experienced
pelagic guides. We take our pelagic birding vessels all the way
to the edge of the continental shelf, 30-40 km offshore. Here we
approach fishing vessels, where unbelievably large number of pelagic
birds aggregate. This presents the opportunity to see thousands
of albatrosses! We see up to 30 seabird species on our trips, including
endemic cormorants, gannets, African Penguin and gulls. The company
has been in operation for five years, but we’ve been birding
and studying seabirds for much longer.
Cape Town Pelagics is the only company to offer
mid-week trips and tailor-made pelagics at affordable prices for
small groups. We also offer the widest range of tour dates available.
We give personalised guiding attention and smaller groups can enjoy
an exclusive experience with our world-class guides. You can combine
pelagic birding with birding on land, with individualised itineraries
that include guiding services from the best endemic-finders in the
country, with our sister company Birding Africa. Cape Town Pelagics
and Birding Africa offer best-value packages for pelagic-and-landbirding
We also offer a range of booking services and trip planning advise.
so if you just seek some advice about where to find birds, where
to stay and what to do besides birding, please
About Birding Africa Birding Africa is a specialist birding tour
company customising tours for both world listers and more relaxed holiday
birders. †We combine interests in mammals, butterflies, dragonflies, botany
and other natural history aspects and will guide you to Africa's and Madagascar's
most diverse birding destinations. Our guides'
knowledge of African birds and birding areas is our greatest strength
and together we have rediscovered species, shared exciting observations
with the birding community and had a fun time exploring our home continent.
†We've even written two acclaimed guide
books on where to find Southern Africa's and Madagascar's best birds.
Birding is more than our passion, it's our lifestyle, and we are dedicated
to making professional, best value trips filled with endemic species and
unique wildlife experiences. Since 1997, we've run bird watching tours
in South Africa and further into Africa for individual birders, small
birding groups and top international tour companies. We've run Conservation
Tours in association with the African Bird Club and work with and
consult for a number of other top international tour companies and the
BBC Natural History Unit.
