For the avid birder, a visit to the Drakensberg promises tiny gems such as the brilliant-green flash of a malachite
sunbird; the chatty cacophony of a flock of masked weavers; to a breathtaking glimpse of the rare black eagle,
martial eagle, lammergeyer (bearded vulture) or lanner falcon revelling in its natural habitat. One might even
have the pleasure of viewing a cape vulture soaring above the foothills. Falcon Ridge is a bird of prey centre in the
Champagne Valley that includes large birds rehabilitated from injury, and provides an excellent opportunity to see
these magnificent sky warriors in action. Daily shows include an informative talk and a memorable performance of
avian acrobatics, as the resident birds of prey swoop down to seize tasty morsels of meat midair.
