Birds and Birding on the Orange River. This segment of the subcontinent has less species diversity than its eastern and northern parts. Bundi staff have been tracking the Richtersveld birds along the Orange River since 1995, and have identified over 127 species so far, officially bird enthusiasts estimate it at 276 species. Observing a large variety of bird species over a relatively short distance is fascinating about the Richtersveld. We have created a page in PINTEREST of all the birds you can spot on the Orange River Rafting experience. A true bird lovers paradise.
Among the many bird species seen at the mouth of the Orange River are flamingos, spoonbills, little bitterns, white-backed night herons, maccoa ducks, and Cape shovellers. There are many raptors in the coastal plains, including the Lanner and Peregrine Falcons, Black-breasted Snake Eagles, and Rock Kestrels. Among the strange and imposing animals, you might see on these vast plains are eight species of Lark, Verreaux’s (Black) Eagle, Ludwig’s Bustard, Dusky Sunbird, Ground Woodpecker, and Southern Grey Tit. Many species of water birds live in the Orange River zone, while bush also draws the Diederick Cuckoo, Cardinal Woodpecker, Barn Owl, Acacia Pied Barbet, Freckled Nightjar, Orange River White-eye, and African Hoopoe.
