ORIBI VULTURE VIEWING EXPERIENCE OFFERS EXCEPTIONAL VALUE FOR MONEY
We are very privileged to have a resident breeding colony of over 200 Cape Vultures on our doorstep at Oribi, 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. And this for a minimum donation of just R100.00** per person.
