Feather & Fur

Raptors circle overhead soaring on the thermal air currents and then swoop down to take a Hyrax off the cliffs to satisfy there dietary needs. Black Eagles, Marshal Eagles, Brown Snake Eagles and Pale Chanting Goshawks are amongst the many Raptor species that inhabit this Karoo Biome. For the avid bird watcher: observe the Robin or Paradise Fly Catcher flitting amongst the trees being harassed by a Fiscal Shrike. Come and enjoy the feathered wildlife in peaceful surroundings.

On a leisurely game drive, you may see the fleet footed Springbuck prancing on the Karoo plains, crazy White-Tailed Gnu’s chasing their own tails, inquisitive Eland observing you, Baboons turning over rocks in search of scorpions for food, large speedy Leopard Mountain Tortoises rushing about there daily business or Legavaan climbing trees in search of a tasty bird's egg in a nest.

At Camdeboo Safari Lodge our knowledgeable guides will treat you to a host of informative information on both the feather and fur side of nature in this Karoo Biome.
