About Oribi Vulture Viewing Hide
ADVANCE BOOKING ESSENTIAL We are very privileged to have a resident breeding colony of over 200 Cape Vultures on our doorstep at Oribi Gorge, allowing very close up and personal encounters with these magnificent birds. From easily accessible cliff vantage points, you can observe the vultures soaring along the ridges, flying above, below and at eye level. Watch as they perform stunning formations and hear the rush of air through their feathers as they glide past, sometimes within just metres. This is a truly memorable (and has been described as almost spiritual) experience. Just a short drive from the tar road at Oribi and you are there. No 4x4 roads to navigate, no mountains to climb, no long hikes.

We have been extremely fortunate and had unreal experiences in the wild from Kenya - (Masai Mara) , Namibia (Etosha) , Botswana, Zimbabwe, BUT this experience at the Vulture Viewing Site was soo extremely unexpected and absolutely incredible - SO WELL WORTH THE VISIT. Thank you Andy for taking the time and sharing your knowledge, insights, experiences and the journey of these special birds with us you were incredible. Vultures in huge numbers so graceful and elegant in flight yet a bit "clumsy" on landing (albeit on cliff ledges 😊). We were there for around 4 hours taking this all in - AMAZING, thank you to you, the farmer and all contributors for your unselfish dedication to their survival & conservation.

Wow thank you Andy, this is an extraordinary story and experience. If you love to photograph birds in flight this is one of the best places anywhere to do it. Having the vultures fly past at eye level watching you, watching them is a very special experience.

Few opportunities like this exist where endangered birds can be viewed in their natural habitat. Exceptional experience presented by passionate and knowledgeable guide Andy.
