INFORMATION FOR BIRDERS

Orabo River Village's natural diversity is given a boost by a 25km-long section of the Orange River, which flows lazily along the border with South Africa. That means there’s a healthy population of wetland birds including the Black-headed Heron, Pied Kingfisher and African Jacana, to name a few. Species often heard at night are Spotted Eagle Owl, the occasional screeching from a Western Barn Owl, and Freckled Nightjars are sometimes heard during the early mornings, evening and during moonlit nights. Flocks of Namaqua Sandgrouse can be seen moving to and from water during the late afternoons, Karoo Korhaan are seen more towards the shrubland and grassy part of Sandfontein. The Karoo Long-billed Lark is often seen from the lodge as well as the following species: Pririt Batis, Bokmakierie, Mountain Wheatear, Dusky Sunbird, Rock Kestrel, Pale Chanting Goshawk, Familiar Chat, Rock Martin, Pale-winged Starling, Lanner Falcon.
