in Birding Africa

I would have loved to have spent more time along the coast fort he KZN coast and her forests lie close to my heart. But alas we have now returned to the beautiful Magaliesberg mountains, just west of Johannesburg.

But whilst down in on the eastern KwaZulu-Natal coast, we did manage a day in the Umtamvuna Gorge – a beautiful forested gorge with wide open (protea-filled) grasslands on the upper plateaus.
