The Sickle-winged Chat Tour is Port Alfred based Karoo-type habitat. We meet up with you at your accommodation in Port Alfred or at a pre-arranged location.

Another completely different route takes one into more Karoo-type habitat, where Sickle-winged Chat, Rufous-eared Warbler, Sabota and Spike-heeled Larks, among other birds not found near the coast. Cape Penduline-Tit are also to be seen, although they are less frequently seen. Other birds to watch out for here are Dusky Sunbird, Lark-like Bunting and Grey Tit. The return trip to Port Alfred can yield other grassland species such as Denham’s Bustard and Black-winged Lapwing.
