Our Bird List

Our land has a wide variety of Mountain Fynbos. There are many raptors, including Black Eagles. Klipspringer live here, as well as duiker, vaal rhebok, dassies, porcupine and baboons. There are unspoiled Bushman paintings nearby and for most of the year mountain streams and pools. There is a hiking trail and walks and a bush pool fed by a mountain stream.

There are several pairs of Black Eagles nesting in the area and there are many other species of raptor and other birds including the rare Cape Eagle Owl. On a warm summer evening one can hear these owls and also the Freckled Nightjars calling in the hills. Our bird list has 85 different birds on it.

Small mountain wildlife, such as Klipspringer, Duiker, Vaal Rhebok, Dassie, Lynx, Aardwolf and Baboon is indigenous to this area. On the drive up the mountain you sometimes see Eland, Zebra, Blesbok and Fallow deer (on Sun Mountain farm).
