West Coast National Park is home is over 250 bird species, over a quarter of South Africa’s total.

Some of these, such as the Curlow Sandpiper, Sanderling and Knot, journey 15 000km from Russia every year to their breeding grounds inside this beautiful National Park on the West Coast of South Africa.


The four bird hides inside the Park give you the opportunity of viewing some of the many bird species found in this area, such as Flamingo, Ostrich and Black Harriers.

Bird hides can be found at Geelbek (two), the Abrahamskraal Waterhole, and below the Seeberg Viewpoint.
