If birding teaches one thing, it’s patience. That’s why most serious twitchers you meet are usually “unruffled”! If you are an avid bird watcher, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to prime birding destinations, and it won’t be long until you tick off most of the 858 species recorded in South Africa. And, once you’ve spotted all the local birds, maybe you can visit exotic Mozambique and try to spot all the birds there as well. Don’t forget your binoculars!
